Course Reserves at Western Libraries

For the safety of our students, faculty, and staff, Western Libraries is unable to provide physical course reserves until further notice. Electronic reserves are still available.

With the goal of providing access to course materials, and in lieu of placing physical items on course reserve, we encourage faculty and staff to use digital materials to support their classes, such as digital access to articles, ebooks, streaming films, or open educational resources. 

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

Western Libraries provides course reserves services to all current faculty, students, and staff. Please note that electronic materials are hosted through the campus learning management system.*

*As noted above, physical reserve items are not available at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
