Course Reserves

Course Reserves

Reserves are course materials made available for use in your course. They are organized into Reading Lists. Physical materials are located in the ZSR library and electronic items are available in Canvas via the Course Materials option in the Navigation Menu.

Log in to Canvas

For Students

On the Canvas page for a course, look for the Course Materials navigation option in the left-hand menu to access the reading list.

For Faculty

The Course Materials option needs to be enabled in Canvas for each course you teach. Once added, you can create and manage your materials (organized into Reading Lists) from within Canvas.
