About Reserves

Use the Library

COVID-19: Due to the library closure, print reserves will not be offered during the 2020-21 academic year. Students, faculty, and instructors can continue to access eReserves through the Reserve Readings tab of their Nexus course.

What are Course Reserves?

Course Reserves are required materials that an instructor has asked the library to set aside for their class, ensuring equitable access for all students enrolled in that course. There are two kinds of course reserves:

Print reserve is for physical materials such as books and DVDs. They are kept at the circulation desk in the Library (4th floor, Centennial Hall) and have shorter loan periods than regular library materials. Photocopies cannot be placed on print reserve; articles and other short excerpts should be placed on eReserveNOTE: Print reserve is currently unavailable due to COVID-19 and the library facility closure.

eReserve is for short excerpts, such as articles and book chapters, and digital materials, such as ebooks and streaming videos. These materials may be links, PDFs, or other digital formats, and can be found in the Reserve Readings tab of your Nexus course.
