Place Material on Reserve

eReserves: Electronic Course Readings

Instructors can submit items such as eBooks, articles, weblinks, book chapters and open educational resources through eReserves.

eReserves is an effective way to list a variety of course materials exclusively for your course sections online through eCentennial, with embedded copyright compliance support. eReserves is fully integrated with eCentennial, making it easy for instructors to create electronic reading lists for students at no cost. 

Visit the eReserves Guide for full instructions about how to get started and submit electronic reserve item requests.

Course Reserves (Hardcopies)

Please note that due to the closures resulting from COVID-19, physical course reserves are currently unavailable.

You may place print books, DVD videos, and print copies of articles on reserve for your students. These materials may be required or recommended readings or resources.

Physical course reserves are available to students on a short-term loan.

You can place physical materials from the Library collection on reserve, or you can provide your own personal copies for material not held by the Library.
