Using Course Reserves in a Canvas Course

Course Reserves is available to you through your Canvas site and allows you to connect specific readings and course materials from the library's catalogs in your Canvas course. Although it is shown in Canvas, Course Reserves is the Ares system, which is developed and maintained by the library.

If you are having difficulty with your readings appearing within Canvas, please contact the library at or call (203) 432-1775

The Ares system does not work with the Microsoft Edge browser (see screen cast below). This is a known issue that Atlas Systems (the vendor of Ares) is aware of. Currently there is no work around so please use a different browser when using Course Reserves:
