Course Reserves

The University of Maryland Libraries course reserves system is accessible through the University's ELMS course management system. Benefits of the system include:

  • Integration with ELMS, allowing "one stop shopping" for all course materials Faculty: To learn how to load course reserves to ELMS (Canvas), please view our instructions.
  • ELMS authentication, eliminating the need for course-specific passwords
  • Online tracking of requests, allowing faculty to monitor the status of reserve items and receive email alerts when new items are available
  • Optional direct faculty file uploads (pending a brief copyright review by reserves staff) for faster turnaround times
  • Student access to all course reserves in one location

To learn more about the system, contact your library branch's Reserves Staff with questions.


Browser support:

Occasionally, browsers or the software that powers ELMS will update and present compatibility issues. If you experience issues with accessing Course Reserves, please try another browser and let us know at
