McGraw-Page Library: Course Reserves


About Reserves

Course Reserves

Course Reserves are any supplemental materials that support a class.

Physical Materials:

  • All physical items (e.g., books, DVDs, CDs) that are on reserve for a class can be picked up at the Information Desk on the first floor of the McGraw-Page Library
  • Books, DVDs, CDs, and many other types of materials can be put on reserve
  • Most physical items check out for 2 hours. Exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis (e.g., a 2.5 hour long film will check out for 3 hours)
  • Physical items may not leave the library
  • Videos can be viewed on one of the Library viewing stations; Audio CDs or Data CDs can be used with a Library computer. Headphones are also available for checkout
  • Library copier/scanners can be used to make personal copies of reserve materials

Digital Materials:

  • Most digital materials (e.g., articles, streaming video) that are assigned are posted in Canvas under the course in which they are assigned
  • Where possible, digital materials should be linked directly from a library database (e.g., JSTOR, Academic Video Online), using a persistent link. Learn how to create a persistent link.
  • Please include the full citation of any digital materials linked in Canvas, to aid students in citing materials accurately, and as a secondary access point in the event of a problem
