Course Reserves

Courtright Memorial Library

Course reserves include books, articles, videos, and music that have been given shorter loan periods as designated by professors for use in specific courses. These loan periods are:

2 Hour (LIBRARY USE ONLY)- these materials circulate for 2 hours and may not pass the security gate at the entrance to the main part of the library.

1 , 3 and 7 DAY-  the materials are due at the time the library closes on the day specified.

To access course reserves:

  • Click on "Course Reserves" from the OPAL CATALOG
  • Choose to search by Professor (last name first) or by Course (ie. INST 2001)
  • If more than one course is listed for a professor, click on the appropriate course.

Professors to place course reserves

Professors may place current library materials or personal copies of material on reserve. Please note that requests submitted Sunday-Thursday take up to 48 hours to pull and process, those requests submitted Friday-Saturday can take up to 72 hours. Please plan accordingly. 
To submit your request online, please click here.

The course reserve collection is for classes that are currently being taught and is designed to give students better access to texts and videos that can assist them in those classes.  The Courtright Memorial Library reserves the right to remove items from the course reserve collection if the item has not been utilized for more than 2 years while on reserve.  Items removed from reserve will be placed back in our public collection as Local Circulation and thus will only be accessible to the Otterbein community.

The Courtright Memorial Library would prefer to place library owned copies on course reserve, please contact our Collection Development and Acquisition Coordinator, Elizabeth Zeitz, if you would like the library to purchase material for use in your course. In addition, any item that has been discarded from our collection may not be placed on course reserve unless no alternative is available, again, please work with Elizabeth Zeitz in that regard.

All materials placed on reserve must comply with the educational fair use provisions of U.S. Copyright Law.
