Academic Year 2020-2021
Course Reserves are created upon instructor request to support a particular class. The Library continues to provide Course Reserve Service during COVID-19. However, the Library is not able to provide print material at library help desks.
The following alternatives are available:
- Links to licensed resources including online articles, books, and other resources. The Library will purchase licenses for online materials whenever possible for Course Reserves.
- PDF's of scanned book chapters, articles, and other print resources. The Library will consider requests to digitize content from library-owned materials and then provide those files to instructors for use in the Course Management System (CMS), one example of which is CCLE (Common Collaboration and Learning Environment). In order to support as many courses as possible, the Library will not be able to scan entire works or fulfill high-volume digitization requests. Faculty are responsible for ensuring that their requested copying and use of materials satisfies fair use, see UCOP Fair Use Guidelines.
- The Library can provide media from the UCLA Library collections and other sources via the Digital Library Reserves.
- Subject Librarians are available to consult with faculty to help identify possible alternative material for course reserves.
Course Reserves requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Turnaround times may be longer than usual because of high demand.
Finding Course Reserves
Course Reserves can be searched by instructor name, department name, or course number in the UCLA Library Catalog Course Reserves Tab.
Course reserves may also be accessed through the Library Resources tab on CCLE (Common Collaboration and Learning Environment).
