Due to the current COVID-19 Crisis, some e-reserve services are being impacted. Digitization of print resources has been stopped until further notice. We are working to ensure access to digital resources is available and accessible to the OCADU community.
OCAD U offers an electronic course reserves service (E-Reserves) that provides students with 24-hour access to copyright compliant course readings through Canvas at no cost. E-Reserves can list print reserve items at the library for the courses so students can locate and access course readings in one place.
Instructors can request course materials online through Canvas:
Benefits to Using E-Reserves:
Activate the "Course Reserves" menu tab. This allows students to view the readings you’ve requested
Choose "Add reserve items" to enter citation information for each reading or to duplicate previously assigned readings.
We will process your requests and email you with any questions that arise.
Processing can take up to 4 weeks. You can select "Subscribe now" to get alerts about your requests.
Items must comply with copyright and our licensing agreements in order to be posted to Canvas. Typically, this means no more than 20% of a print work can be used. If the request is over 20% we may seek out an eBook or suggest placing the text on print reserve.
