Course Reserves

Course reserves (including articles, books, and videos) are materials set aside by faculty for a particular class that may be checked out for short time period or which may be provided online.

For Students:

To find course reserves for your class, access the Course Reserves system via the Course Reserves tab on the library's home page.

Print and media reserves can be checked out from the Library Service Desk on the main floor of the library; electronic reserves may be accessed online.

For Faculty:

Faculty can link directly to articles in many of the library's online resources from their Moodle course pages. To ensure that students can access articles from off-campus, please follow the instructions for obtaining persistent links to library resources.

Faculty who wish to place material on reserve may use the Course Reserves Request Form or email a list of citations to library@up.edu (please include: course name, course number, instructor, and number of students enrolled in each section).

Under copyright fair use guidelines, the library may post up to 10% of an entire work (such as a book or journal) on electronic reserve. If more than 10% of a work is requested, we may seek permission from the copyright holder and determine what royalties would have to be paid.

To facilitate access to reserve items, consider adding a Course Reserves block to your Moodle course page

Faculty may access usage data for reserve items by viewing a current or previous course in the course reserves system and selecting Reserve Item Usage from the menu across the top of the screen.

As an alternative to course reserves, faculty may wish to consider creating a course pack, which may be arranged through Printing Services.
