Clermont Course Reserves
Faculty may request course materials to be placed on physical reserve to keep the resource widely available to sutdents.
In addition to the library's textbook collection development initiative, faculty can place Clermont Library materials or their own text materials on reserve. Loan periods for physical reserve materials are generally at the discretion of the faculty member and range from Two Hour (Campus Use Only), Overnight, and Three Day loans.
Students can then find the materials at the library front desk. Students are required to have a valid photo ID to check-out reserve materials (UC ID or driver's license).
To place materials on course reserve, please contact the Library Operations Manager.
You can search online by instructor or by course. All Clermont course reserves have an instructor of Clermont in addition to the requesting faculty. Therefore, you can always select search by instructor and use Clermont as your search term.
Circulating books and multimedia material from any UC library may be placed on Course Reserve. Materials from other UC libraries will be requested by the library reserves staff. These materials should NOT be requested or checked out by the instructor.
Personal copies of textbooks or other materials can be placed on Reserve with the understanding that Clermont College Library assumes no responsibility for replacing them should they become lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed. If this happens, faculty will be notified to either replace the copy or to withdraw it from Reserves. If you submit a personal copy to be placed on Reserve and the Library owns that same book, the library copy will be placed on Reserve and we will return your copy to you.
Periodicals, reference books, OhioLINK, Interlibrary Loan, or other non-UC Library materials may not be placed on Reserve. The Library is unable to place videos and DVD's from commercial rental establishments (Redbox, etc.) due to copyright restrictions.
At this time, materials remain on course reserve until faculty direct otherwise.
If you will be teaching online and physical reserves is not an option, please reach out to your librarian about your needs and to discuss options for materials in your online classroom.
