EReserves is where faculty place journal articles (and sometimes book chapters) that they want you to read for your class.  EReserves is maintained by the Library, so you get into them through the Library homepage / Find / EReserve.  Alternatively, your instructor might make a hyperlink in Canvas that opens up your course eReserves.

  1. ​From the eReserves page, enter your instructor's name or course number and select the course from the pop-up display
  2. Accept the Copyright statement
  3. IF your course requires an additional password you may be prompted to enter that password.  Your course password is always your course number, in caps, no spacing (e.g., NURS101, HPER102)
  4. Your instructor has decided how to arrange the eReserve articles.  Sometimes they are in folders by week, or by topic; other times perhaps just an alphabetical list of articles
  5. For most articles you click on the title link and that opens within one of our databases, to a page where you will find a PDF copy of the article (sometimes it is only available in HTML format).
  6. If the article or scanned book chapter has been loaded as a PDF, there will be a PDF icon next to the title.  This indicates that there will be a course password that you will have to enter before you can open the article.  Again, the course password is always your course number.

Instructions on using eReserves are attached.  

If you ever have problems opening an eReserve article, please contact the Library so that we can get it fixed.
