Disclaimer: The UMass- Amherst Libraries will take reasonable precautions to protect and secure personal copies of books placed on course reserve. Please be aware that these books may become damaged when they are used. The Libraries shall not be held liable for such damage or normal wear and tear, but may opt to make minor or minimal repairs as needed to allow the book to continue to circulate for duration of the time it is on reserve for class use. Books that are not in serviceable condition for circulation may be rejected or withdrawn from availability. By placing a personal copy on Reserve, you authorize the Libraries to make minor repairs with the understanding that books that are found to be in need of more intensive repair (such as rebinding) will be returned to the owner.

By submitting a request to place personally owned materials on Course Reserve for circulation, I acknowledge and agree to the above terms and conditions and will deliver the book(s) to the Du Bois Circulation/Reserves desk for processing and availability.

I will bring the book(s) in later:
