Textbooks on Reserve

Below is the list of courses which currently have textbooks available on reserve. They have been purchased with Library funds or donated to the Library by academic departments or individual students and faculty members. The textbooks are used for all sections of the courses offered at Middletown unless otherwise noted. (It may be helpful to visit the Miami University Bookstore - Middletown site to check on the required books for a given semester's classes and their prices). Also keep in mind that some instructors will request that personal copies or library copies of textbooks or supplemental readings be placed on library reserve. Those are not listed here, but are listed in the catalog and searchable from the Reserve Materials page.

  • Each textbook may be checked out for two hours. Textbooks may be checked out overnight if they are checked out within two hours of our closing time (they are due back an hour after the library opens the next day).
  • Only one copy of each textbook is available in most cases.
  • Donations of current textbooks by faculty and students are encouraged to expand the project.

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.
