Who do I contact for help with Library Course Reserves?
Within every Library Reserves reading list is a right-hand communication pane: Notes to reserves staff. Please submit questions for library staff about your course here.
Button text can be hidden if viewing the reserve page is at less than full screen or if using a mobile device.
Example: the Add Items + button.
Small screen or window view. Look for just a + plus symbol blue button.
Full screen view. Text is visible.
To see the button text, go full screen or increase the window size.
Cite It! is to save time inputting data; the Add Items>Blank Form option may be used instead.
A Cite It! popup form is pictured below.

Your options for using eBooks will depend on the platform the ebook is available in. Some platforms will allow you to download or print specific chapters or sections, while some will let you download the whole book. Most will let you search within the eBook itself.
eBook publishers can apply different levels of access and usage restrictions which may affect the way you use them. Some of these restrictions include:
Can I hide items on my list from the students?
How do I know when my list has been completed?
May I add something to my list after the deadline has passed? How far into the term may I add things?
I’m teaching a class next term that someone else taught last term. Can I reuse (and update) their reading list?
