Course Reserves

Welcome to the Course Reserves section of the Health Sciences Library website. As of the Spring 2016 semester, a new more convenient reserves system has been implemented. The new system allows instructors to add, remove and edit reserve materials directly online, through the "Library Reserves" tab in Sakai. All libraries now use this system, and it is used for both electronic and physical reserve materials.

A 5 minute walkthrough on the new reserve system is available here.

You still also have the option of sending any requests you may have via E-mail to



Search for Electronic Reserves

(journal articles, book chapters, or other course materials put online, accessible 24/7 through the "Library Reserves" tab for each course)

Search for Library Reserves

(books, audiovisuals, and dental kits/models placed on shelves behind the User Services Desk, accessible during library hours with a OneCard or valid ID)

With Sakai: Log in and click the "Course Reserves" tab to add, remove and edit materials.

Without Sakai: Log in directly to your reserves page to add, remove and edit materials. Use Onyen and password to log in.

  • Electronic items that you add yourself (PDFs, links, etc) will be available as soon as you submit your request, and will go live for students on the first day of class.
  • Print/physical items or electronic items that you have requested for HSL staff to upload ("Please have library staff locate and scan the material" option on the new web form) will need to be submitted 4 weeks before the beginning of a semester. (Fall by July 1st, Spring by November 1st, and Summer by April 1st) Reserve requests are processed in the order they're submitted, so late submissions may potentially add to backlogs which will delay availability.


NOTE: If you're trying to view a list from a past course that was taught by someone else, contact us. Please specify the course and the instructor (if known); we'll send you a brief listing of the readings.
