Course Reserve provides textbooks, books, and other materials that support the instructional requirements of specific courses. Many faculty members choose to place material on reserve in order to ensure that all students in the class have access to it. Physical course reserves, such as books and DVDs, are located at each campus at the circulation desk of the Library Learning Commons. This links to the HELM catalog search for Course Reserve materials in the Bristol LLC.
Like traditional course reserves, e-reserves are materials that are provided by course professors / instructors for use in their classes. These materials, however, are accessible from off campus, and are generally scans of book chapters (downloadable in PDF), permanent links to articles in our databases. and links to other online resources such as films.
