The UConn Library prioritizes electronic access to materials for greater equity and increased usage.
Whenever feasible, the Library will purchase electronic versions of physical materials (such as books and DVDs) that instructors have assigned to courses or requested be put on Course Reserve for Fall 2021. Materials unavailable in electronic format can be placed on traditional reserve at all of our campus locations.
Guidance for Instructors
Please check the library catalog before submitting a purchase or reserve request. The Library offers instant access to hundreds of thousands of ebooks and streaming videos.
Please fill outthis form or contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of course materials desired in an e-format. Obtaining electronic materials can take several weeks—please plan accordingly and consult our guide for details.
For physical items in the Library’s collections: please fill out this form to place the item on reserve for your course. If an electronic version of an item in the Library’s collections is also available, we will send you a persistent link to the e-version rather than placing the physical item on reserve.
