About eReserves and Reading List Service
eReserves is our new electronic course reserve system that allows instructors and students to have one single access point for all reading materials in Avenue to Learn. Instructors upload their course reading list and library staff will search for and manage the course readings. This service ensures your content is made accessible and copyright compliant.
1. Instructors fill out the eReserves form here.
2. Library staff will find your course readings. Staff will scan chapters, provide persistent links, investigate ebook purchases and request ILL scans on your behalf.
3. We will ensure copyright compliance and OCR for accessibility.
4. Your course readings can be accessed in your Avenue to Learn course
