Course Reserves

The UW-Madison Libraries provide course related services to support teaching and learning activities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Course Reserves Services

Materials such as books, textbooks, articles, videos, solution sets, and exams that an instructor has selected for use by students enrolled in a specific course are placed "on reserve" at the UW-Madison Libraries. Some courses will not have any designated reserve materials. Materials are made available in print, audio-visual or electronic formats.

Please send questions, issues or comments related to campus libraries course reserves through the Course Reserves Feedback Form.

Library Course Pages

Librarians work in collaboration with instructors to select and deliver other course-related resources through Library Course Pages. In addition to materials on reserve, these pages may contain handouts from library instruction sessions, links to research tools such as journal databases and Web sites, and contact information for personal assistance. For more information, including a sample course page and how you can have a page developed for your class, please see Library Course Pages (LCP).
