To protect both students and faculty from unintentional misuse of unpublished materials, we require written permission for any request to place unpublished materials that are not the intellectual property of the instructor on reserve. Such materials include:
- Any papers, projects or exams submitted by students while enrolled in a course.
- Any unpublished materials, prepublication drafts, etc. not created by the instructor
Note: we do not require written permission for materials such as class notes, sample exams, etc. for which the requesting instructor is the author. For these materials, the instructor's request to place the material on reserve will constitute implicit permission.
The brief form below may be printed, completed and submitted with any reserve request for unpublished material meeting the above conditions. This form is not mandatory, and is presented for convenience only. Other forms of written permission that originate from the author and include the author's name, signature, title of the work, and the date permission was granted are also acceptable.
