Items on "Reserve" are special items being used by classes. Print reserves (books & scores) are kept behind the circulation desk at the Robinson Music Library. Media reserves may be found in the Media Center. All reserves are for use within the library.
To find what's on reserve, search the library catalog by course or by professor / instructor to determine what is on reserve and where it is located. In some cases, the only copy may be found at a CWRU library, such as the Kulas Music Library
You may also search KSL Reserves for electronic reserves at Case.
You may borrow reserve materials if you are:
- A conservatory faculty member or student
- A CWRU Music faculty member or student
- A CWRU Dance faculty member or student
Loan Periods: Patrons may only check out one item at a time for in-library use. All materials must be returned prior to closing.
Print Reserve items may be checked out overnight 15 minutes before closing time (unless specified "No Overnight.") Overnight loans are due 30 minutes after opening time the next day. Media Reserves may not be checked out overnight. Overdue Reserve fines are $1.00/hour.
Note: Conducting staff and faculty members coaching sectionals may borrow reserve orchestral scores for any scheduled CIM orchestra rehearsal or sectional. Scores must be returned to the library (or drop-box) after each rehearsal.
Photcopying: Reserve materials may be photocopied using overnight checkout (when it is permitted). Special requests for photocopying reserves during library hours may be submitted at the Circulation desk. (Cost: $0.10/page). Scores and orchestral parts may not be photocopied
Photocopy machines are not located in the library.
Faculty members are asked to submit course reserves lists before the beginning of each semester. Advanced notice enables library staff to acquire and process resources that may not currently be in the library's collection.
Print Materials: Faculty can request that specific print materials (books, scores, articles) be placed on the reserve shelf each semester. Submit course reserves lists for print materials to the Circulation Supervisor.
Media: Media may be placed on reserve in the Media Center by faculty each semester. Reserves may consist of your own personal recordings or specific CIM recordings. Personal recordings on reserve will not be permitted to leave the Media Center, unless the faculty member who placed the item on reserve makes the request.
CIM recordings placed on reserve will not circulate to faculty/staff members for the two weeks prior to their related listening exam unless other arrangements have been made. Reserve lists of CIM Media on listening exams with exam dates may be sent to Patrick Fulton. It is recommended that personal recordings be picked up at the end of each semester unless the item is to be an ongoing reserve item.
