Faculty - Library Reserves

  • The Course Reserves in Canvas Guide provides in-depth assistance with setting up reserve materials by using the Library Reserves tool in Canvas to place all requests. 
    • Requests for book scanning can take up to 4 weeks.
    • Harvard Library's Course Reserves page gives additional guidance on timelines and the request process.
  • We no longer have the increased access to digitized books through HathiTrust (a temporary pandemic arrangement) with library buildings reopening this August.
    • Many students found digitized access to books through this arrangement, so faculty should be sure to use the Library Reserves tool in Canvas to request digital access to reserve materials.  
  • To use the Library Reserve Tool in Canvas, see instructions on how to make it visible or contact instructionaltechnology@dce.harvard.edu to have the tool turned on. 
  • Email reserves@harvard-as.libanswers.com with any questions.
