Course Reserves

To help provide more affordable access to course readings, Instructors may put textbooks and other materials on course reserves for short-term loan to students.

For Instructors

 Place your request online via Interlibrary Loan – ILLiad, or email reserves@ohio.edu with the following information:

  • Course name and number
  • Loan period desired: 2 hours (in-library use only), 1 day, or 1 week
  • Citation or link to the item you want to place on reserve

If you prefer to place short readings in Blackboard, document scanning is available via Document Express (choose the Course Reserves/Blackboard menu item in Interlibrary Loan – ILLiad).

For Students

Find materials on reserve for your course using the Course Reserves tab in the ALICE Catalog, or ask at the Alden 4th Floor Service Desk. Reserve materials can be borrowed for 2 hours (in-library use only), 1 day, or 1 week, depending on the item.
