Course Reserves is a library service that allows instructors to make course materials available to students in the library and/or online.
Because this service manages both physical and electronic items, Course Reserves provides your students with both information on physical reserves available at the library and access to online materials.
Course Reserves employs an online reserves management system that allows you to manage reserves for your course, and provides your students with information on materials available at the library and online.
Course materials can be organized according to timeframe, subject matter or any other designation.
All courses reserves materials are automatically accessible through Canvas.
Articles, book chapters, syllabi, lecture slides, assignments, and URLs can be made accessible online. Books, DVDs, and other materials owned by either the libraries or instructors can be placed on physical reserve.
Reserve materials are saved for future use and can be reactivated in future semesters, greatly reducing the time and effort needed to prepare for classes.
All content placed on Course Reserves must comply with U.S. Copyright law.
The Libraries will seek and pay permissions for materials when appropriate based on our guidelines.
For more information, see our Reserves & Copyright page.
