Don’t have your textbook yet? There are several locations to look for your first day or week’s reading assignments. Start at the top of this list and work your way down until you find your readings.


Check the Canvas page for the Course. Many professors post first day readings on this page.

First Day Reading Assignments Page

  • Most courses have a link on this page:  

  • Note: Many of these links describe the reading assignment, but do not link to the actual reading material.

Course Reserves in the Law Library Catalog

  • The Law Library can only add course readings if the professor has provided us with a copy of the text and information about the readings.

  • Note: If the Format says “ELECTRONIC COPY AVAILABLE,” it is available to download.
