It is the policy of the Course Reserve office to link to a vendor copy of material whenever possible. This policy helps keep us on the right side of copyright law, vendors can experience failures. If you or your students attempt to access a Course Reserve item and get a notice from the vendor please email Course Reserve staff immediately with the name of the vender, the title of the item, and the course it was linked to. Most failures of this type can be fixed quickly, but only if library staff knows about them.
