How do I put a book on reserve?
You need to come to the circulation desk with the books to be placed on reserve and request a Faculty Reserve Form, one for each class. The form is also available online for you to print. Please allow 48 hours for items to be placed on reserve. You may also put personal books and other items on reserve.

How do I remove books from reserve?
Notify the Head of Public Services which items you are taking off reserve and when you would like them removed. Please allow us sufficient time to remove these items from the catalog. Expect delays at the end of the semester.
 
How do I check out library materials?
Bring the book, video or other materials you want to check out and your university ID card to the Circulation Desk on the main floor of  the library. Your university ID card is always necessary for checking out books. Faculty can check out items for the length of the semester and can borrow a maximum of 50 books from all sources at any one time.
 
Do I have to come to the library to renew a book?
At the end of the semester, faculty can renew books by calling or e-mailing Loretta Gossett (x7049).

Do I have to come to the library to return a book?
Materials from the John Paul II library can be returned by using the "book return bin" located in the lobby of Egan Hall any day of the week. Materials will be picked up at regularly scheduled times throughout the day. Overdue or requested materials should be brought directly to the Library.
How do I find materials that aren't at the JPII Library?
If a book is not at the John Paul II Library, check the OhioLINK catalog.
Articles are available through the library's Interlibrary Loan Service (ILL) free of charge.
 
How do I recommend a book for purchase by the library?
You can submit an acquisition form, available from the acquisitions staff at the library. Or you can submit a request online through OPAL Request a Purchase.   Please be sure to get your department's approval prior to purchase.
 
Where can I find copyright information?
A good source of information on copyrights can be found at Montgomery College's Copyright Information page.
