Course Reserves

This guide provides an overview of the Course Reserve service offered at VCU Libraries.

Open Access Materials

VCU Libraries also supports professors looking to lower textbook costs using library ebooks or open educational resources (OER). If you are interested in learning more or have questions about OER or affordable course content, contact Abbey Childs, Open Educational Resources Librarian, or visit the Open and Affordable Course Content page.  
To recommend that the library purchase a book (not a required textbook) that can be used as course content, use the purchase request form or contact Karen Cary.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the course reserves team at
