What Philosophical considerations apply to KTC Library Reserve material?
PSU Libraries, encourage instructors to think about the following prior to placing material under Library Reserve control; To use or not to use; if the item on reserve is valuable or unique, seriously consider photocopying it for preservation and not place the original on reserve. Reserve items get used, and (unfortunately) abused, and (yes) sometimes ripped off.
Reserve is not a Fibber McGee’s Closet: Reserve is the place for RAPID access and checkout. It is not a storage closet for items which may be of peripheral interest to your students. From time to time PSU Libraries staff will notate which items have/have not been used over a period of time. We therefore request your assistance in regularly removing items which you will no longer be using. Our goal is to make (and keep) your material accessible to all your students
