COVID-19 Update Regarding Course Reserves

Because of building closures and staffing limitations, we have made some changes to how we offer course reserves:

This update supersedes other information on this page until future notice.

Materials such as books, textbooks, articles, videos, solution sets, and exams that an instructor has selected for use by students enrolled in a specific course are placed “on reserve” at the UW-Madison Libraries.  Physical materials are located at various libraries across campus.  Online content, or e-reserves (articles, book chapters, excerpts, etc.), may be accessed both on and off campus.
