COVID-19 has changed literally everything, especially how we deliver library resources. Working with faculty to make materials more digitally accessible has been at the top of the list. With E-Reserves you can create an intuitive and easily-discoverable interface for your collection. Whether starting from your homepage, an existing guide, or your LMS help your users will easily locate materials.

We'll cover:

  • Using E-Reserves to curate digital collections for set time periods:
    • Collections for courses
    • Collections to support exhibits
    • One City - One Book | One Campus One Book - supporting documents
    • and more
  • Creating request forms that are easy for faculty to use
  • Uploading your own documents or linking to documents in your existing databases
  • Adding a password to restrict access
  • Reusing existing items from course to course
  • Organizing your material

Registration is required.
