Course Reserves

Course Reserves are materials that your instructors have requested the Libraries make available for your entire class. These materials might be books, book chapters contained in books, movies, music or computer software.

Articles and other items may be electronic reserves, also known as “e-Reserves.” E-Reserves are available online from any computer, but due to copyright restrictions, access will be through your Canvas class.


Search the library catalog for materials on reserve by Course Name or Number or by Professor or Instructor Name.


Items that are on Reserve may be checked out, using your SJU ID, at the Library Service Desk on the campus where your class is held. The borrowing period varies from in-house use only, overnight, three days, or seven days.
