Faculty: Time to Set Up Your Course Reserves

Posted on: August 11, 2023

Our Course Reserves service allows you to make it easier for multiple students to access high-demand library materials by limiting checkout times to 4 hours or 4 days

How do I limit checkout times? Please use this form to place materials on Course Reserve, including your personal copies or items that you would like the Libraries to consider purchasing. For more information, contact reserves@jmu.edu.

New feature! Upon request, we can digitize books or other items from our physical collections so that students can access them through Course Reserves without borrowing a physical copy. These items are still available to only one student at a time, but digital access makes it easier for students to take turns using a copy. Please use this form to submit requests for physical materials to be digitized or visit our Digital Course Reserves page to learn more.

How do students find Course Reserve items? Thanks to the “Course Reading List” feature in Canvas, you can choose to list your course reserve materials right in Canvas next to your other required readings. If you don’t use “Course Reading List,” students can still visit Course Reserves to search for items you have put on reserve.
