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.
E-reserves are accessible from off campus, either by downloading a file or using a permanent link to a database article or other online resource. As such, e-reserves do not need to be "returned," and are accessible by more than one person simultaneously.
The Library Learning Commons is pleased to now offer e-reserves in addition to our print reserves. In addition to the Course Reserves housed physically in the Library Learning Commons at the Circulation desk, we offer electronic reserves for certain materials. Limited amounts of a copyright-protected work may be reproduced as an e-reserve. E-reserves service is an extension of traditional print-based library services and will be provided in a manner that respects Fair Use rights, the rights of copyright holders, and current copyright law.
What type of material can be made available as an E-Reserve?
