Course Reserves are physical items (books, media, manipulatives) or electronic content (PDFs, streaming video) by which instructors supplement their courses. Physical items are put on reserve at one of the three library branches, such as Cooper Library; electronic content can be found through the eReserves webpage linked within Canvas.
Placing Materials on Reserve
Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, physical reserves will not be available during the Spring 2021 semester. While we realize their importance in supplemental classroom instruction, our decision is based on the safety of our patrons and staff along with our inability to quarantine items sufficiently for high use and high turnaround items. Further assistance in locating materials for course development can be provided by contacting one of our subject liaisons. Additionally, our Open Educational Resources Librarian can assist in finding free or low cost materials for classroom use. Finally, eReserves are available and can often offer a high-quality alternative to print reserves. Please note that eReserves are subject to copyright compliance and availability. Contact us for more information or assistance.
Instructors can reserve physical items (books, media, or objects) or electronic content (PDFs, streaming media) for their students by class. These materials can either be Libraries-owned or personal instructor copies. Fill out the Course Reserve Request Form at the bottom of the page, and materials will be accessible to your students within 24-48 hours.Electronic Reserves are found through the eReserves webpage linked through the Library Resource tool in Canvas.
