The Course Reserves tab in Canvas allows instructors to request books, articles and individual readings to be made available online and in the library. In order to submit reading requests you will need to first enable the Course Reserves tab on your Course Navigation Menu following the instructions in this Knowledge Base article.
Adding Book Chapters or Articles
To request an item to be held on e-reserve, start by clicking the "Add Reserve Items" button.
* Note: articles or chapters cannot exceed 20% of a work. For more information on copyright allowances, see the university's copyright policy.
If you are using more than 20% of a book it cannot be scanned for e-reserve. But you have other options:
If you're teaching multiple courses or sections of a course in which you are using the same readings, you don't have to re-enter them for each course. See the Re-Using Reserves tab for instructions on how to clone e-reserves from other courses.
Adding Print Reserves
To request an entire book, journal or other physical work, deselect the box beside "This is an Article or Book Chapter (E-Reserve)." The page will transform to give you new input boxes in order to add identifying information so e-reserves staff can locate the work.
Please use the notes section to let staff know how long you would like the item to be kept on hold for your course.
At the bottom of both forms is linked text that, when pressed, will give you space to enter an ISSN, ISBN or Call Number. If you have any of this information, it will help the e-reserve staff to locate your request faster.
