Instructor's Guide to Placing Material on Course Reserve
A separate online form should be submitted for each class. Incomplete or incorrect applications may significantly delay the processing of reserve requests.
Material that is owned by OSU Libraries or the instructor may be placed on course reserve.
A reserve purchase request may be submitted via the course reserves request form for material not owned by OSU Libraries or the instructor. Instructor will be notified either with material has been placed on course reserve or if the request was denied.
Items placed on reserve can be circulated for 3 hours, 1 day, or 2 days.
It is recommended that at least 2 copies of required materials be made available to reserves for classes with 20 or more students.
Requests are processed on a first come, first served basis.
Library staff will do their best to process all reserve requests in a timely manner. Please allow up to 1 week for reserve materials to be processed.
E-mail notification will be sent to the instructor when each item is placed on reserve.
All copyrighted materials placed on reserve must conform to copyright law. A signature is required to show compliance with this law. For further information, please contact Michaela Willi Hooper, Scholarly Communication Librarian. For more information about copyright clearance for coursepacks sold through the bookstore, visit the OSU Copyright Center.
The library will supply binders for photocopied materials not submitted in binders.
Video Reservation Requests
Library owned videos may be placed on reserve for multiple classes at a time. If you are planning to use the video on a specific date, make an advanced reservation to ensure the item's availability.
Video reservations for classroom use can be made using the online Course Reserve Request Form or by an instructor using the library catalog. When using the online form, note in the comments field the date and times you need the video. Requested videos will be placed on reserve for student viewing and held for you on the requested dates for in-classroom viewing. As with other reserve items, please allow one week for processing time.
Current Reserve Items
Students can ask for reserve items at the circulation desk by course number, course title, instructor's name, or title of the book.
To view a current listing of your reserve items, please visit the course reserves main page and search by course number, course title, instructor's name, or title of the book.
Tip: Include Bend when searching for your course to see Cascades items (ie. Bend COMM 321).
Instructors may elect to add or remove items from reserve at any time.
All reserve items not specifically requested for another term are removed from reserves at the end of the term. Personal copies are returned to instructors or may be picked up from the Libraryt. If you would like to extend a course reserve listing into the following term, please contact us before the end of the current term.
