Course Reserves

Using E-Reserve

Manage your E-Reserves Course 

  • You can add items to your course throughout the semester.

Begin using E-Reserves

Integrate E-Reserves Into Blackboard or Canvas

Library Resources Tool: Embedding E-Reserves Within Blackboard and Canvas

  • The Library Resources tool in Blackboard/Canvas connects students to what they need alongside their other course information without sending them outside their browser window or mobile app.
  • Instructors can embed subject guides, course guides and/or E-Reserves.
    • If a class has a course guide, the tool will automatically add it to the course.
    • For classes without course guides, departmental subject guides will appear. No action is required from instructor.
  • The same is true of most E-Reserve lists; however, instructors who create their own E-Reserve lists will need to add metadata or ask the Reserve Desk to do this for them. The metadata matches a parameter within Blackboard and Canvas. 
  • For a tutorial on how to embed E-Reserves and other library resources into Blackboard/Canvas, visit the following links:

    • Note: Requests may take up to six weeks to complete, depending on the availability and number of the materials.
    • Please fill out the request before the semester begins to ensure that your Reserve list is processed on time.
  • To add materials to your course throughout the semester, fill out the Course Reserve Request Form and select the "add to existing course" option.
  • For more questions, view the tutorial videos below or contact the Reserve staff for your library.

Renewing Your List

  • To renew your Print Reserve list for next semester, contact the Reserve staff at your library before the end of the semester.
    • Any items on Print Reserve that are not renewed for the next semester are discharged at the end of the current semester. Staff will contact you to retrieve any personal copies.
