Libraries procedures for Course Reserves, Spring 2021

To prepare for continued remote teaching and COVID-19 guidelines put into place by the university, the Libraries will continue providing Course Reserves services in support of online and remote teaching and learning for the Winter Interim sessions and Spring 2021 sessions and semesters.

The Libraries continues to recommend electronic materials when possible, including journal articles, book chapter scans and streaming video in place of print formats. The goal of the Reserves program is to ensure all students have online access to course materials through Canvas.

Print Reserves will be available in limited quantity at Libraries locations, following CDC-approved quarantine and sanitation guidelines to ensure safety.

• All teaching faculty and staff can submit requests for Course Reserves materials
• The Libraries can provide appropriate assistance in locating, processing and uploading materials to Canvas

We recommend requesting materials at your earliest convenience, as requests will be processed in the order they are received.

Course Reserves will continue to be provided electronically in manners respectful to Fair Use rights and all current copyright holders and law.
