About Reserves

The Reserve collection consists of books, audiovisuals, tests, short articles and other items placed on reserve for student use in conjunction with courses offered at ORU.

Students request items by giving the name of their professor and the name of the item they wish to check out. Items on Reserve can be searched in the ORU Library online catalog by professor name or the title of the item.

The Reserve collection is located behind the Circulation Desk on the fourth floor of the Learning Resources Center.
