Course Reserves

The University Library supports curriculum needs with its course reserves service, which offers faculty the opportunity to make books, coursepacks, CDs, and other physical items available to students. These items are available to students at the libraries for short periods of time to maximize access to high use and high demand materials.

Faculty are encouraged to look at the millions of online articles in PDF format available to the University of Michigan community before placing a request for course support via the library's 7FAST service.  If the article or book chapter needed is not available via our online resources, 7FAST staff will be happy to provide electronic versions of materials for instructor posting to their course CTools sites.
