Course Reserve Information


Main Content

Canvas (under Penn Libraries Course Reserves)

The Library will place electronic reserves (and information about physical reserves) in your Canvas site under the "Penn Libraries Course Reserve" section.

Reserve staff will scan reserve materials and link to licensed e-resources. These will be made available to faculty and students under the "Penn Libraries Course Reserve" section of a Canvas course.
(Faculty also may continue to use the Library's traditional reserve services for printed books, personal copies, photocopies.)

To place requests for electronic (or physical) reserves.
  • Go to the "Penn Libraries Course Reserve" section of your Canvas site
  • Click the link to 'Add Reserve Item' under 'Instructor Course Tools'
  • Choose an item format
  • Fill out the form and submit
If you didn't ask for Course Reserves when you initially registered your Canvas site, please contact your preferred library location so that they can enable this section of your Canvas site for you.

Librarians will also provide additional support for Canvas courses, such as links to key databases, tutorials on particular research tasks, or course guides that list major reference tools and primary source collections. Contact your Library Subject Specialist if you would like to discuss any additional service or support that the Library could provide.
