Resources for Students in Online and Off-Campus Programs: Course Reserves

What Are Course Reserves?

Your professors work with the BU Libraries to make articles, book chapters, and even sound recordings available through electronic course reserves for the students in their classes. Please note that you are not to post or share attachments or copies of the required or other course readings, as it is an infringement on copyright laws and department policy.

Find Course Lists

Go to BU Libraries Course Materials to locate course materials (reserves) lists at BU Libraries.

To find a course, click Find Lists in the navigation panel on the left side of the screen.
