Reserves & Coursepacks


  • Library reserves are materials, such as books, articles and videos, selected by professors for a specific class to read or watch.

  • Some reserves are available electronically and others are available at the circulation desks in the DePauw Libraries. Electronic reserves (e-reserves) can be accessed through the Course Reserves link in Moodle or navigating directly to Reserves.

  • You can sign-up to receive an alert when new items are placed on reserve for your class by selecting the Subscribe Now option on your course reserves page.
