Frequently Asked Questions

What are Course Reserves?
Course Reserves are items selected by faculty for their class to use during a specific semester. They include books, textbooks, films, sound recording, articles, and maps.

Has the pandemic affected the Course Reserves? 

Yes, to help protect the UCCS Pride during the pandemic, we have updated some library services, including Course Reserves. We are currently NOT lending printed course reserves. Instead, we are scanning and posting these items in Canvas if the faculty requests. 

How do I find Course Reserves in Canvas? 

You can find Course Reserves in Canvas through https://canvas.uccs.edu/ and locating your course.  

Who is allowed to use Course Reserves? 

As Course Reserves are available through Canvas, only the students registered on the specific course can use them.  

How do I find out what items are on Course Reserves for my class?
