Course Reserves

As the college transitions to remote learning, we understand there may be concerns about students being able to access the Course Reserve copies of textbooks housed in the library. If your course has books on reserve in the library and you anticipate that one or more of your students will need to access them in the coming weeks, please send an email to and attach your course syllabus. We will make every effort to find an electronic version we can make available, however in some cases this isn’t possible. In those cases, we will need your syllabus to be able to complete documentation we keep on file in support of fair use BEFORE we digitize any chapters. You can then embed those digitized excerpts in your D2L course shell and your students will have access to their readings in the event that RRCC campuses must close because of COVID-19.
Because copyright laws still apply to these materials, we ask that faculty only distribute these digital materials through their password-protected D2L course shells.  Fair use laws allow us to scan limited amounts of a book for educational purposes, but the law provides for penalties if we distribute them more widely.  We appreciate your help in ensuring that we are compliant with copyright restrictions. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me directly at or 303-914-6747.
