Course Reserves

Course Reserves for students

Course Reserves is a collaborative web app for creating and managing course readings and resource material. It helps instructors select resources from a variety of sources, involves library staff to manage access and availability, and provides students with direct access to the readings.

Students login to Course Reserves through their OnQ courses. You will find a link to Course Reserves in the "Content" section of your OnQ course.
