Course Reserves and Scanning

Course Reserves (Print & Digital)

Print Course Reserves

Course Reserves are located at the the Library's Circulation Desk. This service lets your instructor set aside books, articles, and other materials for your course ensuring that everyone enrolled in the course has equal access to them. 

Items on course reserve are available for a limited amount of time as requested by your instructor. This should give you enough time to read or scan the materials for your class.

eReserves (digital)

Electronic course reserves are digital materials available to students 24/7 and are password protected. Password are available from your instructor.
