Electronic Reserves

E-Reserves are electronically accessible, full-text articles and book chapters that are supplemental in nature and meet fair use copyright guidelines. They benefit students through 24 hour/7 day a week access to course readings.

Previous library reserves services will be discontinued starting in the summer 2015 semester. Using Blackboard or JayDocs provides access to e-reserve readings, protects the rights of copyright owners and limits any liability on the part of the University. KUMC Copyright Policy and Guidelines

Adding Library Resources (after fair use determination):

Library held resources can be added to your Blackboard account in three different ways:

1. Link directly to the electronically held version within the A. R. Dykes Library's licensed electronic content.

To create a link to an item in the library's electronic collection, use PubMed

  1. Go to library.kumc.edu and click PubMed icon
  2. Use the Single Citation Matcher to search PubMed to locate the article
  3. Follow the FindIt! @ KUMC link to our E-Journal Finder page
  4. Use the URL on the results page (copy and paste) to connect students to the article.

For questions regarding how to link to A. R. Dykes Library's licensed electronic contact copyright@kumc.edu

2. Request scanning and electronic delivery of library held materials (some restrictions as to length/amount may apply)

  • Submit requests through ILLiad, A.R. Dykes Library's Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan request system.
  • Electronic copies are supplied within 1-3 business days. The library reserves the right to decline to scan any Course Materials that it deems violates Copyright Law.

3. Self-service scanning/copying

You are welcome to utilize materials in house or check them out to copy and/or scan at your convenience. A.R. Dykes Library provides a variety of scanners, printers and copiers.

Getting copyright clearance

If you have items that don't fall within the "fair use guidelines" use the Copyright Clearance Center to determine pricing for copyright permissions.
