Course Reserves

Physical and digital materials chosen by instructors to support teaching and learning

Digital course materials can now be accessed directly through Moodle and Blackboard. 

The Libraries now use SIPX to speed up our copyright permissions process and save money

Reserves materials are UMass Libraries owned or instructor provided items that are made available in person at the Circulation Reserves desk or online through Moodle, Blackboard or Ares Course Reserves software.

Physical reserves are available for 3 hour loans to ensure timely and equitable access to required and supplementary course material. 

Digital reserves are available online at any time and can include links to eBooks, journal articles, and book chapters, as well as links to full length or excerpted audio visual material.
