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 eReserve

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 ReserveReadings tab of your Nexus course.
