FSU Libraries and Canvas Integration

This guide is designed to help faculty and instructors integrate library resources and services into Canvas courses.

What are eReserves?

  • eReserves are electronic course materials such as journal articles, eBooks, streaming videos, or scanned physical items
  • eReserves can be open access (freely available online), library licensed electronic material (such as an article found in one of our databases), or material owned by FSU Libraries or the instructor
  • Any items placed on eReserve must comply with all applicable copyright laws

How can FSU Libraries help me add eReserves to my course?

1. Access the Faculty Reserves request form in the Canvas navigation Help menu

2. Select Electronic Course Reserve (Placed in Canvas) under Reserves Location on the Reserve Item Request form.
