The ISU Library’s Course Reserves service works with instructors to make required course materials available for current classes. Instructors use the Ares Course Reserves integration to create course lists of these materials in Canvas and can be accessed by students 24/7. Users will need to visit the Parks Library Main Desk or Design Reading Room Circulation Desk to access any “hard copy” reserve materials (books, DVDs, etc.).
All access to Course Reserves materials occurs within Canvas. Log in to Canvas, then take one of the actions listed below.

Course Reserves materials are made available through Canvas and can only be accessed using a university IP address or Net-ID. ISU Library will pay any reasonable publisher’s fees, making reading materials available to students for free.
