Course Reserves

Faculty may place books, audio-visual media, articles, electronic documents, and other types of materials on reserve in the library for students enrolled in their courses to use. Course reserves can be either physical materials that are housed in the library at the circulation desk or electronic materials that are stored and accessed online through the ERes system.

Physical Materials for Reserve

Materials on reserve in the library are for in-library use only.These items are kept on reserve for one semester and are then returned to the library collection or the owner of the materials unless longer reserve arrangements are specified. Physical materials for reserve can be books from the library collection, text books, audio-visual items, or printed articles/documents. Faculty members may also place personal copies of books or audio-visual materials on reserve. For more information contact Erin Kovalsky, Circulation Coordinator at

Electronic Reserves

Electronic reserves are materials that are in a digital format (PDF files, Word documents, etc.) and are made available through ERes on the library web site.

Access to material posted on ERes is restricted to faculty, staff and students enrolled in a specific course (copyright law). In consultation with instructors, the library staff assigns specific passwords to each ERes collection of course materials. Instructors are responsible for supplying the appropriate ERes password to students enrolled in their courses.

Library staff can receive documents in electronic format in an email attachment or hard copy documents that can be scanned into the ERes system. For more information, please contact John Coger at 315-684-6055 or
