FAQs for Course Reserves
For Faculty & Instructors
Randall Library’s e-reserve service will be discontinued at the end of the 2018 Spring Semester. Library mediated electronic reserve use has dramatically decreased over the last few years as faculty have moved to Blackboard to manage their own course content. Faculty who would like to provide electronic access to course materials may use the University’s Blackboard course management system to do so. The library will also discontinue the practice of posting reserve reading lists in individual course sites in Blackboard.
