Reserves Information for Faculty
Additional Information for Faculty
Each library maintains a print/course reserves collection where instructors can place materials in support of class room instruction (e.g., books, copies of book chapters, journal articles, sample exams, and class notes).
The week before and the first week of Fall and Spring semesters are busy times. To ensure that materials are available for students when needed, at the start of each semester allow one week for library staff to process materials for reserves. At other times, please allow 2 working days.
Placing Materials on Reserve:
Fill out a Reserve Request Form and deliver materials to be placed on reserve to a Circulation desk for processing. Forms are available circulation desks, or you may click here http://rocket.lib.muohio.edu/about/reserves/request_form.pdf) to obtain a print-able online version.
Placing library books on reserve:
Library staff will retrieve these items for you and place them on reserve. On the Request Form, provide author, title, and complete call #.
Placing personal copies of books on reserve:
We will affix a barcode, reserve labels, and theft detection devices to personal copies.
Placing book chapters/selections on reserve:
Chapters or selections from a single book or monograph may be placed on course reserve. Copyright guidelines limit copying to one chapter, or not more than 10% of a work. (We can place one copy for every 20 students in a class, to a maximum of three copies).
Photocopies of articles, notes, practice tests:
We can place one copy for every 20 students in a class, to a maximum of three copies.
For course materials are chosen by the instructor. Options are, 2 hours/For Use In The library only; 1-day, 3-days.
All reserves materials are removed at the end of every semester. Library material is returned to the circulating collection. Personal materials are returned to you through campus mail unless otherwise indicated. The library is not responsible for the loss of, or damage to, personal copies.
