Using E-Reserves

Accessing E-Reserves and Finding Course Materials 

You can access Electronic Reserves (e-reserves) 24 hours a day, on or off campus. Access to these materials is limited to students in the specified class. 

Access the e-reserves here through the K-State Libraries website.

  1. Using the link above, search your course. Ex. ENGL 220
  2. Items that are available in print will display with the following : "Located at Hale Library Reserves -- "
  3. Items that are electronic and can be accessed 24/7 will display with "Available Online."
    • These items require students to be logged in to their K-State Libraries account. If access is denied, ensure that you are fully logged in.

If your professor has enabled reserves integration in your Canvas course, you may also access them there. 



E-reserves course files are no longer accessible from the e-reserves space at the end of each semester.
