Place textbooks on reserveThe Libraries' course reserve service allows instructors to set aside books and articles for class use, or to make articles or book excerpts available through Canvas. Reserve items can be requested through your course site in Canvas. Place items on reserve by following the instructions on libraries.nu/reserve, by contacting the reserve department at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 847-491-7681.
Request e-book access
Some assigned texts may be available for the Libraries to purchase as e-books for the entire class to access. To make a request, contact your liaison librarian with the book information and need by date.
It is important to note that the following major publishers do not provide institutional licenses to e-books and thus cannot be purchased for students to access via the Libraries:
- Oxford University Press (textbook division)
To see if the library has access to your assigned readings via subscription databases, start by searching NUsearch or simply email us your syllabus or reading lists and we will send you the links when available.
