Western Libraries can place library owned materials such as journal articles, book chapters, or materials where you own the copyright (such as lecture notes) on e-reserve for you. If the material is in paper format we will scan the materials for you. If we already have electronic access links to articles can be easily added to e-reserves.

If needed, we can often purchase materials, investigate copyright clearance options, and assist you in other ways to ensure you have the materials needed for your class.

All e-reserve content will be added to Canvas courses as an additional "Library Resources" navigation tab on the left side menu. Handling reserves through Canvas helps Western comply with copyright fair use best practices.

Request e-reserves for course or place materials on e-reserve for an existing course
