Textbooks on Reserve

JavaScript disabled or chat unavailable.

The Library has provided textbooks on reserve for a selection of courses offered at Middletown since 2006. Below is the list of courses which currently have textbooks available on reserve or as licensed e-books.

  • Each textbook may be checked out for one day.
  • Only one copy of each textbook is available in most cases.
  • The textbooks are used for all sections of the courses offered at Middletown unless otherwise noted.
  • Donations of current textbooks by faculty and students are encouraged to expand the project (and stretch our library funds).

Faculty members, please use our Reserve Request Form to add a textbook on reserve to our collection if it is not already owned by Miami University Libraries! You can check on that using our Books & More catalog.

History and Purpose
In a collaborative effort, the Gardner-Harvey Library, Miami Middletown Student Government (MMSG), academic departments, and individual faculty members brought together, starting in Fall 2006, a reserve collection of textbooks for Miami Plan or other introductory courses offered at Miami University Middletown. The aim was and is to assist students who may not be able to afford the textbooks or who may be delayed in purchasing them, and to give all students in the courses an opportunity to make use of their required texts while on campus. Given the ever-rising costs of textbooks, this project is aimed at making these materials for learning as widely available as possible, which is certainly a part of the Library's mission. A bit more on our motivation can be found in this article.

The program grew tremendously in 2008-2009 thanks to a gift from Robert and Nita Driscoll. Robert was an active member of the Middletown community and a patron of the Gardner-Harvey Library for many years. Mrs. Driscoll made this gift to the campus in memory and continuation of his efforts to support education. Textbooks have certainly not become cheaper, and this gift extends our reach to serve students.

We have continued to purchase textbooks each semester, usually having a collection of approximately 100 textbooks available to cover roughly 100 Middletown courses. Once the textbooks are not used by students in courses at Middletown, we add them to the library's general collection, where they are borrowed by students and faculty in OhioLINK (sometimes for many semesters after they are last used on campus).
