Now you will see a notice highlighted in green: “Your request has been received. You will receive a notification via email when the request has been received.”

Your request will be sent to me directly, and I will enter them into the system on an individual basis as they are received. Once I have your e-Reserve finalized, I will send you the “live” URL so you may embed it into your Canvass course. Once I have your Book Reserve finalized, the books you requested will be placed on the Reserve Book shelf in the Library. Your Book Reserve will also be listed in your course e-Reserve with a direct link to the item in the Bryan Library catalog.
