At this time, the university does not create printed course packs, nor does it maintain a system of electronic reserves. As an alternative to electronic reserves, in cases where NEOMED Library has licensed digital versions of copyrighted material, the citation and link to the electronic version of the material may be included within the relevant course materials. Any restricted content will require users to use their Library login to access the content. The Library encourages links to be pulled from our Discovery Layer (https://libraryguides.neomed.edu/discovery).
To comply with Fair Use Guidelines, the Library does not place files in NEOMED’s online learning and collaboration system, branded as Academic Integrated Management System (AIMS). Course materials posted by non-Library Staff in AIMS are only for the use of students enrolled in a course for purposes associated with the course and may not be retained or further disseminated. Full-text items should be taken down by the instructor or staff member who put them up after the term(s) for which they were used.
The Library may place print materials on reserve for courses upon request of the faculty member or staff involved with the course.
