All reserve assignments are made available in Blackboard for the duration of the semester. For more information about course building Blackboard, go to

The purpose of Electronic Course Reserves is to make reserve materials available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and also to expand the kinds of materials instructors can currently place on reserve. Course participants may listen to reading, viewing and music examples which instructors wish to make available for course reserves. The physical items (books, DVD’s and CD’s) may also still be checked out at the Mendel Music Library Circulation Desk. We hope that students will find electronic access to these files to be a time saver and a more complete resource than the traditional reserve desk.

Search the Library Catalog for materials on reserve by instructor, department, and/or course
