Course Reserves are course-related materials made available through the UWB/CC Campus Library. Textbooks, films, and other Items owned by the UW Libraries or the instructor may be placed on Reserve for short-term checkout.
Instructors are responsible for returning Reserve materials on time, including items on Reserve for their own courses. For additional information, see Physical Reserves Search Tips and Policies.
UWB and Cascadia faculty may request scans of book chapters or journal articles from materials owned by the UW Libraries for their UWB/CC courses. Campus Library Reserves and the UW Libraries scans PDFs with optical character recognition (OCR) but does not provide remediation of PDFs for added accessibility as a standard service (e.g. adding tags, alt-text). OCR creates a PDF that is compatible with assistive technology (such as screen reader software), though the quality may not be sufficient for individuals with visual impairment. If a student has a documented need for an accommodation, contact UWB Disability Resources for Students (DRS) or Cascadia Disability Support Services (DSS) for assistance.
Books, media, and other physical materials owned by the UW Libraries or the instructor may be placed on Reserve. Short loan periods are assigned to maximize access to course materials. One copy of most required books for UWB courses are automatically processed for Reserve; required books for Cascadia College may be placed on Reserve if owned by the UW Libraries or instructor.
Licenses govern the use of electronic versions of UW-restricted materials. Links can usually be made to these resources unless prohibited by license agreements.
Stable off-campus links can be added to Canvas unless license agreements prohibit the use of links for Course Reserves. To create an off-campus link, visit UW Libraries' Creating Stable Links to Journal Articles or contact Reserves staff for assistance.
Electronic books (e-books) in the UW Libraries collection typically are not placed on Course Reserves because they often have licensing restrictions that prevent multiple users from accessing the book at the same time or limit the overall number of times the item can be accessed. If you have questions about using an e-book for a class, please Ask Us or contact your subject librarian.
The Bothell Campus Library offers UW Bothell instructors streaming media course support service for fully online or off-site courses. Visit the Streaming Video Guide for additional information.
