Course Reserves for Students

For the safety of our students, faculty, and staff Western Libraries is unable to provide physical course reserves at this time. Electronic reserves are still available and are accessible online 24 hours a day via the course listing for your class in Canvas.

What are course reserves?

Course reserves are items that are needed to support coursework for specific classes at Western that Western Libraries makes available to all current WWU faculty, students and staff. All course reserve materials at this time are electronic and available online.

How do I locate the course reserves lists for my classes?

Can I request additions to the reserve list for my class?

What if the link to the e-reserve is not working or is broken?

Is it possible to have an electronic version of the textbook for my class placed on course reserve?

Will physical course reserves be available next quarter?
