- Course Reserve: help lower course costs for students by setting aside textbooks and DVDs for class use. You can also make articles, books excerpts, and streaming media available through Canvas. Visit the link or contact email@example.com to get started.
- Open textbooks and e-textbooks: work with us to find free, high-quality open textbooks and other open educational resources for your course.
- Interlibrary loan: the Libraries offer Interlibrary loan, which gives students the ability to borrow books (including some textbooks) and other materials from other libraries completely for free. Inform your students by including this information on your Canvas site and in your course syllabus.
Regular reserve allows your students to check out class materials from a central location for a short period of time. Similarly, eReserve provides access to digital documents, such as book chapters and articles, through Canvas.
Copyright law places some restrictions on Reserve use of copyrighted material, particularly use by eReserve.
For more information about the process of placing items on reserve, as well as copyright restrictions, see Reserve Information for Faculty.
