Reserves

Library Reserve Info

Traditional Library Reserves

Otis Faculty place materials on Reserve in the Library for their students. Reserves are really an extension of the classroom. They include books, copies of chapters from books, and articles from journals and newspapers. In addition, Reserve materials sometimes include syllabi, lecture notes, and videos/DVDs.

Individual faculty members initiate the process of placing items on Reserve by bringing materials to the Circulation Desk and filling out a Reserve Form, available online or from the Circulation Desk in the Library. The Reserve item is then prepared for circulation and a record for it is created in the Library's catalog. Finally, the item is placed behind the Circulation Desk, where students can check it out for a period of time stipulated by the professor, ranging from Library Use Only (recommended) to overnight. For questions regarding reserves, please contact Vickie Thomas or Shelley Forbes.

 

Electronic Reserves

In addition to Traditional Library Reserves, some materials may be available through the O-Space Learning Management System on a 24/7 basis. O-Space uses the same credentials as accessing your Otis webmail.

Use the Checklist for Fair Use before uploading materials into O-Space. Faculty are responsible for compliance with the Otis Copyright Policy.
