I am not going to take a legal position on this but I don't see how
"face to face" could apply since it specifically refers to IN CLASS with
Instructor PRESENT. You would have to make an argue that this would apply to
something broader like fair use but again I don't see how.
Regular reserve material itself has nothing to do with face to face and is
permissible under a standard personal use.
Would be happy to hear other opinions
