Electronic Reserve in Canvas
If you have used Electronic Reserve in the past or if you are new to Electronic Reserve you have the option to have us add your items to the library catalog (Library Electronic Reserve), Canvas (Canvas Electronic Reserve), or both.
All files authenticate using a myLaSalle login. If you use Library Electronic Reserve (through the library catalog), students will still be prompted to enter their credentials before viewing content. Canvas Electronic Reserve requires no additional authentication once the student is logged in to your class.
How it Works:
You will then need to direct students to the files, as they can access them in a number of ways. Depending on your course design, you may want to provide links to the files in Modules, Pages, or Files. If you’d like assistance determining which method best suits your course, please contact any member of the Instructional Design team.
We are also able to copy any documents to Canvas Electronic Reserve that you currently have on Library Electronic Reserve.

The Audio Visual Classroom (Room 021) is located on the lower level of Connelly Library. The room can accommodate approximately 30 students and is equipped with a projector that is hooked up to a DVD player, VCR, and PC. Any faculty needing the room should contact Bernetta Doane at 215-951-1287 or email@example.com. The primary use of the AV Classroom is for Bibliographic Instruction and the librarians have priority for booking the classroom. Our policy is that any reservation is considered tentative until 2 weeks prior to the date scheduled. If the reference librarians need the classroom for Bibliographic Instruction, we will contact you to reschedule your time. Within 2 weeks of your scheduled time, you will not be bumped from your reservation. Our policy does not allow for wholesale booking of the classroom for an entire semester.

The room can accommodate approximately 15 students and is equipped with a projector that is hooked up to a DVD player, VCR, and Laser Disc player. With limited exceptions for special circumstances (e.g. a class that will be working with materials from one of the Special Collections), our policy does not allow for wholesale booking of the classroom for an entire semester.
