Course Reserves

Course Reserves is a library service allowing instructors to make required or recommended materials available to students. It provides information on physical reserves at the library and access to online items.


  • Access your Course Reserves materials through Canvas. Click on the "Library Course Reserves" link in your course. This opens your list of PDFs, weblinks to electronic resources licensed by Emory, and physical reserves items available for checkout. 

  • Borrow physical reserves items from the Marian K. Heilbrun Music and Media Library service desk (level four of the Robert W. Woodruff Library). 

  • If your instructor doesn't use Canvas, you can log in directly to the Course Reserves site to see the materials for all of your classes. Click on "View Course" next to a class to see your materials. 


You may place materials on reserve for students at any time. Please visit the Course Reserves for Instructors page for instructions on:

  • Accessing your Course Reserves materials list directly through Canvas.
  • Placing requests for materials held by the Emory Libraries through discoverE.
  • Adding, reactivating, and uploading materials directly through the Course Reserves site.

Contact the library that serves your school or department if you have questions about submitting reserve requests.
