Course Reserves: Fall 2021 Update for Students

Where do I find course reserves?

We are significantly reducing the number of print reserves, beginning in fall 2021. The Library will continue to offer access to course materials as electronic reserves. For most courses, your instructor will provide links to these items within your Canvas course site. For print reserves, search the Library Catalog (Primo)  by course, instructor or title for the item you need.  Print and media reserves can be checked out at the Circulation Desk.


Can I obtain my textbooks from the Library?

The Campus Store sells and rents assigned course materials in both physical and electronic formats. The Library may have physical or electronic copies of some assigned course materials within its collections - search the Library Catalog (Primo) by course, instructor or title for for the item you need. If you require access to an item that is not currently held by the Library, please contact your liaison librarian, who will determine if the Library can purchase an electronic copy.

If an electronic copy is not available for the Library to purchase, the library recommends that students who are experiencing financial hardship reach out to Student Financial Services to discuss options. Student Financial Services can be reached at financialservices@seattleu.edu
