Information and links relating to Course Reserves

Faculty: Put Items on Reserve

Physical reserves (e.g. books, DVDs) are not currently available.  Physical materials need to be quarantined for 4 days before reuse, which prevents recirculation needed for print reserves.

First time users should refer to the FAQ and Copyright sections above.


  • Use the Reserve Request form for all reserve requests such as library owned books, DVDs, and journal articles. You can also use this form if you would like library staff to create an E-Reserves account and upload your limited, scanned readings.
  • If you prefer to manage your own E-Reserves page/s, please use the Self Service form.

  • If there is material you would like to add as required course readings that the Library currently doesn't own, please use the form for Request a Purchase.

More about the E-Reserves system:

E-Reserves is an electronic reserves software program that enables students to access linked journal articles from the Library’s subscription databases, limited scanned sections from books, and journal articles, as well as other print and visual materials that faculty may place on the Course Reserves Collection as required class readings.



The tabs at the top of the page will provide you with additional information about using E-Reserves effectively and efficiently.
