For Faculty & Instructors
Randall Library’s e-reserve service was discontinued at the end of the 2018 Spring Semester. Library mediated electronic reserve use has dramatically decreased over the last few years as faculty have moved to manage their own course content online. Faculty who would like to provide electronic access to course materials may use the University’s Canvas course management system to do so. The library discontinued the practice of posting reserve reading lists in individual course sites in Canvas.
