First, be sure that the student is using the UF VPN client; for more information on the UF VPN Client CLICK HERE.
You may contact the Course Reserves unit at 352-273-2520 or send an email to notify Course Reserves staff at email@example.com. It generally takes only a few minutes to fix a broken link.
Excerpts from books owned by the library can be scanned and placed on electronic reserves under the following conditions:
When the article requested for electronic reserves is available full text through a database that is subscribed to by the University of Florida libraries, staff will provide a link to the article in the database. The Course Reserves units will not post PDF files, Word files or other formats of documents that contain the full text of an article that is available in one of the subscribed databases. If the article is not available in the databases that the UF libraries subscribe to, we can scan and post the article under fair use guidelines. As a general rule, only one article per issue of a given journal can be made available for electronic reserves for a course; multiple articles from the same issue, or an entire issue of a journal cannot be put on electronic reserves. There are, as a rule, no restrictions on linking to articles in databases that the libraries subscribe to.
Personally-generated materials (Powerpoint presentations, class notes, sample tests created by the instructor, etc.) can be placed on electronic reserves. Please note these restrictions:
In general, links to websites outside of the UF domain can be made available for course reserves, provided that the material in question is freely available and the site has permission to post the material. Links to password-protected for-pay resources or other subscription-based sites, or materials from these sites that are violations of existing copyright are not acceptable.
If there is uncertainty about materials that might be placed on either hard copy or electronic reserves, we encourage you to contact the Course Reserves main office at 352-273-2520 for additional information.
