Reserve Materials Guidelines
Faculty members or instructors may place course material on reserve in the OSU-Tulsa Library or online through "electronic reserves" to ensure availability for students in their classes. Reserve materials are available on the web through the OSU-Tulsa Library catalog and at the Circulation Desk.
Reserves may include:
Books from the OSU-Tulsa Library, government documents, personal and/or departmental copies. The library does not put interlibrary loans on reserve.
- Clear photocopies of journal articles.
- Exams, lecture notes, problems sets, etc.
- Slides, videos, CDs, models, etc.
- All reserve materials are subject to compliance with copyright law.
- A Reserve Request Form must accompany all materials.
Request Forms should include:
- The course prefix and number to match the listing in the University Class Schedule.
- The call number (including the volume number, if any), author and title for library books.
- The author and title for photocopies or books provided by the course instructor.
- The citations in the course syllabi must be the same as the citations given on the reserve request form.
Request Forms are processed in the order received.
Priority is given to reserve requests that are a direct result of textbook shortage at the bookstore.
Requests are processed in two working days.
- Delays may occur.
- During the first four weeks of a semester.
- When library materials must be recalled, searched, or photocopied.
- When materials must be purchased, allow a minimum of four to six weeks for an order.
