Course Reserves for Students

How do I locate course reserves lists?

Log in to the Canvas page for your course and look for the navigation tab “Course Reserves” on the left side of the page. Links to physical items (books and videos) will show call numbers and availability. Links to electronic items (articles, book chapters, ebooks, streaming media, external content) will open in a new browser window.
