Reserve Materials for my Students?

Faculty may place library materials or items such as personal books and copies of articles for their students on reserve. Reserve items are located at the Circulation counter, and are available to students to check out for short periods of time. The instructor placing items on reserve determines the length of check-out time. Click the following link to download the Library Media Center's Reserve Guidelines.

Who do I contact for help with course reserves? 

What if I have materials I want to put in Canvas?  While Canvas makes it easy to post articles you have saved or scanned, doing so may violate copyright. You have a couple options for legally adding articles.

  • If the article is full text in one of the library databases (i.e. Academic Search Complete or JSTOR), then find the permanent or persistent URL.  For the article to be accessible from off-campus, it must go through our proxy server.  Therefore the URL for our proxy server [] must go in front of the persistent URL of the article.  For more detailed information, see the Help sheet on linking to library articles or contact the JFK library reference desk [509-359-2263] for help.
  • If the article doesn't have a unique URL, or isn't full text, then contact the EWU Library Circulation Desk 509-359-7888 [] for help.
