Answer

Copyright Notice:  US copyright law requires copies made for reserve and ILL use to be marked to indicate that the original material may be copyrighted.  The proprietary electronic reserves system the library has adopted has a built-in copyright notice to satisfy this requirement.  Traditional reserve items will be stamped to satisfy this requirement.

Password Protection:  Copyright laws require copyrighted materials on electronic reserves to be password protected to prevent unauthorized access to the material.  The proprietary e-res system used by the library provides for protecting documents this way.

All instructor are required to list a password for each of their classes.

Instructors are responsible for providing password information to their students!

Library staff will not be privy to this information, so they will not be able to assist students in this regard.  Instructors are cautioned to be discreet when disseminating their passwords.

You can find out more about the University's copyright policies at the Library's Copyright Information page:  http://libguides.trinity.edu/policies_copyright.  The Library's policies and procedures governing reserves are at http://libguides.trinity.edy/policies_reserves.
