Course Reserves at Western Libraries

Electronic reserves are still available. Planning is underway for limited circulation of physical reserves, but not likely to happen during summer quarter.

To request streaming media, please use the Streaming Digital Media Request Form or contact your Subject Librarian Team for assistance with resources for remote teaching and learning.

Western Libraries provides course reserves services to all current faculty, students, and staff. Reserves are electronic and physical materials needed for coursework, and may include library- and instructor-owned texts, articles, videos, audio recordings, and other relevant resources that support of classroom instruction.

Please note that electronic materials are hosted through the campus learning management system, Canvas, while physical materials are housed near the Libraries Circulation Desk on the second floor of Haggard Hall. In order to meet the needs of all students, physical items may have a shortened loan period.
