Personal copies of books, journals, audio, and videocassettes, etc., will be placed on reserve at the owner's risk. The Library assumes no responsibility in regards to lost or damaged items. Also, the owner should understand that the placing of materials on Reserve requires the attachment of necessary identification and circulation labels to those materials.
Only materials that normally circulate may be placed on Reserve.
Photocopies of articles, book chapters, or other materials will be accepted. It is the responsibility of the faculty member placing the item on reserve to ensure that the materials comply with copyright guidelines. For assistance in determining the copyright status of a work and/or fair use guidelines, see Copyright and You, Fair Use Guidelines, and TEACH Act.
Books, workbooks, DVDs, CDs, audiovisual equipment, test kits, and other physical materials may be placed on reserve for student use. Reserve materials may be checked out with a valid ORU ID for a limited period specified by the faculty member. Checkout period options are: 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, 1 day, 2 days, or 4 days.
You may place items from the library collection or your own personal copies on reserve. Please bring the item to the One-Stop Library Services Desk with the request form.
Whenever possible, posting articles on D2L is the best option for convenience and copyright compliance. If this is not possible or practical, the library will endeavor to make necessary accommodations. For assistance, please contact Jane Malcolm at 918-495-7495.
Please submit photocopied materials, pamphlets, etc. in labeled manila folders (one document per folder), clearly marked with the citation.
You will receive confirmation when item(s) are ready to check out.
Below are forms for faculty to use to place materials on Reserve. Please save copies of your forms until the end of the semester for your records. For more information, questions, or comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Circulation Supervisor at 918-495-6392.
