New Course Reserves Tool

Emory University Libraries has implemented a new Course Reserves tool. Watch a short video highlighting some of its features.

For starters, here are just a few things about Ares we would like for you to know:
  • Summer courses that started before May 14th will continue to use Reserves Direct for the duration of that course. Please contact your library for more information on how to access these materials.
  • Course Reserves provides many features for users including instructor self-service or library staff full-service, requesting directly through discoverE, integration into Blackboard, immediate access to uploaded materials, physical and electronic items all displayed in one easy-to-view place, the ability to archive and reactivate past course materials, the ability to group course materials by subject and dates, automated email notifications for newly added materials, system generated process statuses for pending requests, and much more.
  • We have migrated three full years of Reserves Direct course materials into the new software. This includes complete course materials from Fall 2011 through Spring 2014. Summer or Fall 2014 course materials added to Reserves Direct before May 14 will also be migrated.
  • We will be happy to migrate earlier course materials on an on-demand basis.  Please contact your home reserves library for more information.
