Course Reserves and Canvas

Many instructors place required and recommended materials on Course Reserve.

Physical items, like textbooks, can be checked out from the circulation desks at University Library, Mudd Library and Schaffner Library on a shortened loan period (2 hours, 4 hours, or 1 day).

Digitized items, such as book chapters, journal articles, and streamed audio and video, can be accessed through Canvas

Within Canvas course sites, check the left navigation for: Course Reserves (for books and articles) and Library Media (for film / videos).
