  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Reserves

Library Reserve Info

Traditional Library Reserves

Otis Faculty place materials on Reserve in the Library for their students. Reserves are really an extension of the classroom. They include books, copies of chapters from books, and articles from journals and newspapers. In addition, Reserve materials sometimes include syllabi, lecture notes, and videos/DVDs.

Individual faculty members initiate the process of placing items on Reserve by bringing materials to the Circulation Desk and filling out a Reserve Form, available online or from the Circulation Desk in the Library. The Reserve item is then prepared for circulation and a record for it is created in the Library's catalog. Finally, the item is placed behind the Circulation Desk, where students can check it out for a period of time stipulated by the professor, ranging from Library Use Only (recommended) to overnight. For questions regarding reserves, please contact Shelley Forbes.

 

Electronic Reserves

In addition to Traditional Library Reserves, some materials may be available through the O-Space Learning Management System on a 24/7 basis. O-Space uses the same credentials as accessing your Otis webmail.

 

Note to Faculty

Faculty interested in using making available electronic versions of course materials should take into consideration the copyright issues. Use the Checklist for Fair Use before uploading materials into O-Space. Faculty are responsible for compliance with the Otis Copyright Policy.
