Reserve Materials

Reserve materials are those high-use items that faculty require to be read by groups of AOU students, i.e. REQUIRED READING. These books are taken out of regular circulation and placed at the Circulation Desk in the Library. These books are restricted for the use of AOU students only.

Materials that have been placed on Reserve may be borrowed for 2 hours, as long as the item is returned half an hour before closing time. Reserve books may also be borrowed overnight and must be returned before 8:00 o’clock the next morning.

Faculty wishing to place material on reserve should send an e-mail providing copies of the documents along with the course information and how long the materials should be located on reserve.
