Course Reserves
Traditional (Print) Reserves
Faculty may put library-owned books, personal copy books, article photocopies, VHS tapes, DVDs, or other teaching materials on reserve for student use during the semester.

In order to put items on reserve:

  • Bring the material(s) you want on reserve to Cambridge Hall 127.
  • Complete a Reserve Form (also available at the front desk) indicating: your name, department, course being taught, loan time, type of reserve, and the title of the item as you have it listed in your syllabus.
  • You can learn about the seven loan times on the the student Course Reserves page.

All reserve items are removed at the end of the semester. You may come in prior to that time and ask for items to be removed. Personal copy items not picked up will be returned through campus mail. Please contact Kate Hoefler at (740) 826-8156 for more information about putting items on reserve.

Electronic Reserves (E-Reserves)
The library supports electronic course reserves, which students can download, email, save, and print.

In order to put items on E-Reserve:

Library Instruction
You may request a librarian to come and teach specific resources to your class. The instruction session can take place in your classroom or another space of your choosing. Please visit the Instruction page for more information or contact Kristin Cole at (740) 826-8017.

Interlibrary Loan
If you find a citation for a book or article that is not available through the Muskingum University Library or OhioLINK, you may request it using traditional Interlibrary Loan.

Charges can be billed back to your department. If you have questions about Interlibrary Loan, please contact Nicole Arnold at (740) 826-8154.

Recommending Items for the Collection
Find book reviews by using Choice Reviews. Use the on-line request form or paper copies available in the Acquisitions Office to recommend books and other materials the Library should purchase. Please contact Connie Burke at (740) 826-8153 for more information.

Archives and Special Collections Research
The Library maintains both the University Archive and a separate special collection of unique non-circulating books. Most of the items in the special collection have records in the Muskingum Library catalog and will appear in your search results. Special Collections will be unavailable during the library renovation project. However, the items in the University's archive may be available. If you need access to the archives, please contact the University Archivist, Dr. William Kerrigan, by emailing archives@muskingum.edu.
