Electronic Reserves

Electronic Reserves in Canvas 

Students access eReserves through your online Canvas course. Ashour Benjamin, Periodicals Coordinator, needs access to your Canvas course to add the eReserves reading list. 

We can also provide training for Instructors who prefer to upload and update their own eReserves on their Canvas site.  

The San Jose State University Library must own physical or electronic versions of the source in order for material to be placed on Electronic Course Reserves. We can scan University Library books and provide database permalinks for you. When submitting journal articles or book chapters for electronic reserves, please identify the source material by providing a copy of the title page for each source or by clearly writing the bibliographic information on the front page.

If SJSU does not own a particular book or journal title, we cannot place it on electronic reserves until copyright permission is obtained. If permission is required, our office will look into securing it. All non-copyrighted material such as homework solutions and lecture notes may be placed on electronic reserve without permission.
