Course Reserves

This guide outlines Course Reserves services for faculty as well as student access to materials placed on Reserve.

Accessing reserve items

Access course materials by logging into Ares with your WUSTL key. A list of your courses displays on the main menu. Click on the course name to see items that your instructor has made available.  Book chapers, journal articles, and other readings are usually available as PDFs. You can also search in the Catalog for books, DVDs, or other materials on reserve. Search by the course number or instructor's name. The catalog will indicate which library on campus is holding the materials for your course. Visit that library's checkout desk to use the materials.
