The Library uses the Reserves List Tool in Canvas to manage reserves. The IT Service Center will assist with technical questions about setting up your course reserve tool. Please contact the Course Reserves Librarian ( with any additional questions about course reserve materials or processes.

*Please Note: Only books from the Gutman Library Collection may be placed on course reserve.

  • Complete a new citation request in the Reserves List Tool.
  • If the Reserves List Tool is not yet available or if there are any other issues, contact the Course Reserves Librarian ( .
