Reserves

Course reserves are items (including books, DVDs, CDs, A/V items, journal articles and/or photocopies, electronic resources, instructional equipment, and non-book items) chosen by instructors to support class instruction. The items are maintained in a separate location within the library, and access to the item is more restricted than is the access to items in general circulation.

The purpose of a reserve collection is to:

  • support OCC's instructors and/or departments toward access of items stated above;
  • provide timely, convenient, and efficient access to high-demand items; and
  • make textbooks more readily available.

The library encourages the incorporation of a variety of course content through our course reserve system. The service is provided in a manner that respects the rights of copyright holders and the limitations to those rights as specified in current copyright law (See "Specific Guidelines" for more information).
