How do I access E-Reserves?

Wurzweiler Students, please check: E-Reserves Guide for Wurzweiler students

 

To access E-Reserves from Canvas (Recommended):

  • Electronic reserve lists are now automatically added to all Canvas course pages (https://yu.instructure.com/) . Students can directly access the list without a password from the Canvas page.
  • Go to your course Canvas Page
  • Click on “Library Resources and E-Reserves”.
  • If you are off-campus, at this point you will be prompted for your Off Campus Access Service login and password (YUAD): https://library.yu.edu/OffCampusAccess
  • When the article text or book record appears on the screen, you can print, email, or save it to disk.
  • If you have any problems, please contact - ereserves@yu.edu.

* Please note, Canvas no longer supports Internet Explore. If you are having trouble open up an eReserve item, please try other web browsers.

If your course does NOT use Canvas:

  • Go to the Library homepage: https://library.yu.edu/home
  • Click “Resources” then “E-Reserves” on the dropdown menu
  • Search your course by title, number or instructor.
  • Enter the password when directed (course number, e.g. BIB5031) (Please note: Wurzweiler students have a different password.)
  • When the article text or book record appears on the screen, you can print, email, or save it to disk.
  • If you are off-campus, at this point you will be prompted for your Off Campus Access Service login and password (YUAD): https://library.yu.edu/OffCampusAccess
