Education Resources for Distance and Online Students: Find e-Reserves

This guide is intended to assist Education students at a distance or taking course online in accessing library resources and research materials

What are eReserves?

Sometimes your professor will place an article or book chapter he or she wants you to read on eReserve. This prevents you from having to find (and purchace) the material yourself. EReserves can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection.

Finding eReserves

If your professor tells you to read materials on reserve (or eReserve), just use the Course Reserves link on the library webpage to find them.



Use the Reserves option in the library catalog drop down to search for your course prefix (i.e. STAT251, SOC311, etc.)
