Textbooks on Reserve

Some course textbooks are available on reserve at the library.

Reserve materials are located at the Circulation desk, and most check out with your UCO ID for only 3 hours for use in the library only. This is to ensure that the largest number of students can share the textbooks or other materials. You may copy a limited number of pages (in compliance with copyright law) or use the textbook inside the library as often you want.

It is easiest to find out if the library has your textbook if you know the title. Search for it here. You can also search by subject. For help, drop by or call our service desk at (405) 974-2878 or chat with us.

Because of the higher demand, the fines for reserve materials are higher.

  • For 3-hour reserves, the fine for overdue materials is $1.00 per minute.
  • For 3-day reserves, the fine for overdue materials is $20.00 per day.

If an item is not returned, you will also be charged the replacement cost.

Textbooks are purchased with a limited amount of funds as a current pilot project, or donated. We prioritize purchases for 1000-level and 2000-level classes, for which most or all of the professors use the same edition and title. If we do not have your textbook, consider donating yours when you are finished with it – future students will thank you!
