The University Libraries' course reserves services allows instructors to put course materials "on reserve" -- meaning that we will keep the materials behind the circulation desk, so that they are always available for in-library use by their students.
In addition, our electronic course reserves (ECR) hosts digital versions of course materials online, allowing students to access them from anywhere, 24 hours a day.
Any library material may be put on reserve, as well as instructors' personal copies of books, videos, albums, etc.
Students, to find reserve materials, search or browse the library catalog's course reserve listings.

Electronic Course Reserves (ECR) Guidelines
Special considerations when creating course reserves to be posted online.
Putting images on course reserve
The Visual Resources Collection hosts course reserve images online, providing easy access for students. Physical slides may also be put on reserve.
Copyright and course reserves
All materials placed on reserve must qualify for an educational fair-use exemption to US copyright law.
Reserving a DVD to show in class
If you would like to show a DVD (or videotape or Blu-Ray) in class, we can reserve it so you know it will be available.
