Submit your electronic reserves now using our electronic reserves form

Electronic Reserves

Why use Electronic Reserves?

Convenience: Library services creates your ARES account, obtains the material and requests the permissions. All you have to do is provide us with the citations.

Cost-effective: The best part of this wonderful service is that Library services pays for the copyright permissions as well as the subscription to Ares so your students don’t have to.

Worry Free: Once the course content is on the system for your course it’s saved to ARES and we can  easily re-request permissions for the readings the following term or the following year.

Important Timelines for Electronic Reserves

Items requiring copyright clearance (this includes book chapters, journal articles not contained in our databases and audio-visual materials): 4-6 weeks
