Course Reserves exists to ensure access to high demand materials for student use. Specifically, these are items which have assigned readings for a course.
Course reserves can be Open Access, licensed library materials, or material owned by the USask Library or the course instructor.
Course reserves may be any electronic item licensed by the University of Saskatchewan Library, including e-books, e-articles, music, and films.
The USask Library can create links to electronic resources, such as journal articles from the databases we subscribe to.
Course reserves may be scanned print items. The Library can make electronic copies of articles from print journals, as well as portions of a print book, including musical scores. Scanned items are subject to fair dealing guidelines.
If the Library does not own something that you believe would be beneficial to the Library collection you may Request a Purchase. Due to Covid-19, there is a focus on purchasing e-books. Please make a note in your request if you would like the item for a course reserve list.
