Place Materials on Reserve

Library course reserves is one of many campus services that can help you connect your students to course materials. The Libraries are also glad to assist you with finding materials to make available to students in other ways. Arrange for a consultation with a librarian to talk about how the Libraries can best help you.

Libraries can help you:

  • Determine if course material is freely available to students online through a library purchase or as a public domain or creative commons work.
  • Make course material available for limited circulation by placing it on physical reserve in a library collection.
  • Create “E-Reserves” with convenient and secure access to online materials.
  • Host material in a secure online environment that limits access to enrolled students.
  • Include the best library databases and searching tips for your students’ assignment.
  • Advise on copyright and fair use issues related to course packs or online access to materials.

Here are quick links to some campus library pages with information for faculty/instructors regarding reserves.

If your departmental library is not listed consult the Campus Libraries page or contact us.

MyUW is the primary access point to reserves using Library Course Pages, with links to e-reserves as well as listings of materials (print and audio-visual) on reserve in library facilities.

Other instructional resources can also be customized for your Library Course Page, such as selected journal databases and websites, tips and techniques for effective library research, and contact information for personal assistance. Instructors interested in having additional Library Course Page material developed may contact the Libraries’ Teaching & Learning Coordinator at 262-4308, or fill out this request form and a librarian will contact you.
