eReserves Information for Faculty

Broome Library is available to help create an electronic selection of resources/readings available and accessible 24/7 to enhance student learning. We call this service eReserves.

The library provides the following eReserves services:

Linking Library Digital Resources for eReserves:

Direct links can be created in your Canvas class to journal articles and eBooks from the library’s subscription databases. Links include proxy addresses so that no additional login is required.

To have digital materials linked to a Canvas class, please email and provide information about the materials to be linked and the Canvas class to which they should be linked. Alternatively, a syllabus (with relevant resources indicated) may be emailed.

Scanning of Print Materials for eReserves:

Library-owned print materials can be scanned and uploaded to your Canvas class. These materials are rendered screen-reader accessible, and include copyright/fair use information.

  • To request that materials be scanned, please  e-mail
  • For questions regarding fair use of print materials, see this CSU Fair Use Factors Checklist(PDF, 56KB).
  • For questions about the amount of material that may be scanned, please see the Library’s Copyright Policy.
  • Please allow two weeks for the processing of scanned eReserve materials. This time frame may be longer if the request is submitted during the first week of the semester. The earlier you are able to provide us with requests, the faster they can be scanned and processed.

To request the purchase of material for print reserves use, please send an email to or, with information about the material and the course in which it will be used.

In regard to eReserve purchase requests, please note that barriers exist to the purchase of digital resources, as described in the CSU Statement on Textbooks.
