Faculty Reserve Materials

Information for Faculty

The MISL Faculty Reserves are being moved to room 266 Fourth Avenue Building, our new Curriculum and AV Library.  We are in the process of organizing these and hope to be open for operation by mid-July).  When we are operational, faculty will be able to leave “reserve” materials that support the teaching and learning of their students. Faculty are responsible for assuring that photocopied materials meet Portland State University’s Copyright Policy as outlined on the Millar Library website ( staff are not allowed to photocopy copyrighted materials for faculty, staff, or students.

In order to assure timely access, materials must be received at least one week in advance so that they can be cataloged before students begin requesting them. Faculty will be asked to fill out a reserve slip for each item indicating how long materials may be kept, whether or not they can leave the MISL, and whether a detection sticker can be added to the item. All reserve items will be returned at the end of the term unless other arrangements are made ahead of time, allowing for maximum use of limited space. 

Faculty are encouraged to take advantage of the Millar Library’s Ereserves to provide more equitable access for students.

Information for Students

Faculty Reserve Materials will be housed in room 266, Fourth Avenue Building (1900 SW 4th Ave). In general, they are arranged according to the last name of your instructor. Please ask lab staff to find these materials for you when you need them. The length of time they may be used and restrictions on whether or not they can leave the lab are at the discretion of the individual faculty member.
