Course Reserves

Physical Course Reserves Unavailable

This fall, we are unable to provide print and other physical reserves services The very nature of that program is not compatible with safe handling protocols developed in response to the current pandemic.  Instead we encourage instructors to identify portions of printed works we can scan and make available in accordance with copyright law.  For complete works, we will purchase electronic access when possible.  Please note, the Libraries cannot purchase textbooks.  Instructors should check the Digital Course Materials program from OIT to see if the assigned textbook is available there.

 Request Items for Blackboard

Requests for scans, to be placed by the instructor in Blackboard or made available by the Libraries through electronic reserves, should be made using the Content Request Form.  Since both purchasing and scanning can take time, requests should be made as far in advance as possible to ensure timely availability.

Instructors are encouraged to contact course reserves staff at reserves@ohio.edu with questions about course reserves and to contact their subject librarian if they have any questions or concerns about digital materials.

For Students

Look in your Blackboard course for available digital course materials or Search the ALICE Catalog to locate other electronic reserve materials for your course.
