Libraries’ services and tools that help you deliver course materials to your students: E-text(s), articles, media, etc.

Instructors, you can: 

Setup reserves and course packs

Request assistance with course material support from the Libraries (including online reserve, on-site reserve, digital course pack, and print course pack requests).

Instructors now have the option to edit their own reserves through the Library Course Page tab in Canvas.

We have created an instruction manual that walks through the various parts of the reading lists that can be edited and updated. Final approval of these edits does need to be done by reserves staff so if you choose to use this feature, remember to send the list to the libraries using the “send” button at the top of the Library Course Page.
