Fill out the Print Course Reserves Form.
If you have any personal copies for reserve, please bring the material to The Desk in Beeghly Library.
Library staff will hide course pages and records at the end of each semester.
If you would like digital copies of your readings, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Usage statistics will be compiled and sent along with an email informing faculty when and how to pick up reserve items.
If you're interested in creating a course pack for your class, please contact one of these third-party providers approved by the OWU Bookstore 4-6 weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. Both vendors require a list of your readings, with full citation information for each reading.

To check out items on print reserve, you will need:
The majority of course reserves are located in Beeghly Library. However, reserves may also have been placed in the Science Library or the Media Center. Visit the front desk of the library or department where your item is located to borrow.
NOTE: Course reserves can be borrowed for short periods of time ranging from two hours to one day and typically cannot be taken outside the library.
As a way to help stretch student budgets and contribute to retention efforts, the Libraries are asking faculty to consider putting personal copies of textbooks and, if the publisher allows, review copies of textbooks on reserve. Not sure if your review copy can go on reserve? Check the agreement you signed with the publisher when you accepted the review copy. It will let you know if sharing with a third party is acceptable. There are no limitations on personal copies. Thanks for your consideration.
