LibGuides: E-Reserves

First in our series of LibGuides information posts is Electronic Reserves, or E-Reserves. Faculty may place items on E-reserve for course use; items are secure, access is password protected, and each course has a unique password which is provided to the
instructor for student use both on and off campus.

Interested in E-Reserves? 
The following information will help you get started.

Already have a course or instruction LibGuide? 
E-reserves may be added as a dedicated tab for quick and easy access.

E-Reserves are accessible through AU Library web site and LibGuides portal. From the library web site, select the research guides link directly below OneSearch.

An E-Reserves search box is located directly below the A-Z Database List.

Use the search box to find a course by number or instructor name, or simply select “go” to access the E-Reserves home page.
The main E-Reserves page lists each course alphabetically by number / name.

Navigate using the tabs for course, instructor, or term, or enter information in the search box.
Course E-Reserves have a customized page which includes course number, name, instructor, and term.

Take time to read the copyright statement, enter the e-reserves password, and click ‘go’ for E-Reserves access.
