About Reserves

The New School Libraries provide access to course content including articles, books, statistical sources, videos, scores, etc. through Canvas or any of The New School Libraries’ locations. Please see our Reserves FAQ or watch our Reserves How-to Videos for more information.

Placing materials on reserve ensures that: 

  • Materials are assessed for fair use and used in accordance with copyright law; 
  • Access is stable and secure; 
  • Potential non-tuition costs are limited for students. 

Spring 2023

The New School Libraries remain dedicated to helping you plan for the Spring 2023 sessions and beyond, providing you and your students access to the resources that you need free from concerns about paying for content or licensing and copyright.

Request Your E-Reserves

Request your course materials as soon as possible through the Course Reserves service in Canvas. While course assignments may change or be added at the last minute, the more lead time we have to get the material ready for you the better. 

The New School Libraries provide online access to academic resources including articles, books, case studies, statistical sources, etc. Physical reserves are available at all library locations for material that cannot be provided online. Please note that print book delivery may take up to 8 weeks. Questions about alternatives? Please Ask Us!
