UO course reserves are available on LibrarySearch.


Because UO Libraries is temporarily closed, we are unable to provide access to a traditional print/media Course Reserves collection. In lieu of this service, instructors may submit requests to have resources digitized that are required for remote teaching and provide material to students via Canvas or some other means to support remote teaching. Please note, we are only able to digitize print material (UO- and instructor-owned) at this time. UO Libraries and campus are investigating solutions for digitizing media that is required for remote teaching and cannot be acquired any other way.

Instructors only: Click here to learn more about our Digitization Service and submit a Request.



Materials that are on reserve are easy for students to access and have shortened loan periods. Course reserves include library- and instructor-owned books, videos, audio recordings, and other relevant materials in support of classroom instruction. Such materials are located at the following locations:

  • Design Library
  • Checkout & Reserves Desk, Knight Library
  • Law Library
  • Math Library
  • Oregon Institute of Marine Biology Library
  • Portland Library and Learning Commons
  • Science Library

The Canvas course management system is used by most instructors to provide course readings, handouts, announcements, assignments, and grades. For help with scanning files and adding them to Canvas, please contact Educational Technology and Canvas Support.
