Course Reserves

Course Reserves allows you to easily share content with students enrolled in your Canvas course. It is a university requirement that content for which you do not own copyright (journal articles, book chapters, multimedia, etc.) be managed through the Course Reserves system. 

You and your students can access reserves content directly within your Canvas course under “Library Course Reserves.” Library staff will assist you with posting reserves content, permissionsfair use, public domain, and other questions. When necessary, Library staff will also seek and pay permissions from a special fund for this purpose provided by the Provost's Office.   Neither you nor your students will be charged permissions fees.  

Please visit the Course Reserves page on the Woodruff Library's website for more information on getting started.
