Sign in to Course Reserves


Once logged in, you will need to search for and add your courses to the main menu. You may be prompted for a course password assigned by your instructor when adding a course using copyright-protected materials.


Books, articles, videos, recordings and other materials may be placed on reserve in the library or electronically for a course. You can start your library course reserves request in two ways:

  1. Use your instructor account to set-up your course and add items online. WMU Libraries will review all items submitted online for compliance with copyright guidelines and accessibility standards.
  2. Email lib-rsc@wmich.edu for assistance. A library staff member will review your request, search for materials in the Libraries' collections, digitize portions of physical materials, and upload them to the system.


Books and other physical materials will be located at the Service Desk in Waldo Library. Articles and other short texts will be available electronically through this system.

All requests must comply with WMU Libraries' copyright guidelines for course reserves, including limitations on item types and the amount digitized.
