Course Reserves (Ares)
The Course Reserve (Ares) system allows instructors to make course materials available to enrolled students.
- During the fall 2020 semester, course reserve materials will be available in online formats whenever possible. Physical reserve items will also be available to borrow on a first come, first served basis in LIB room 109. Physical reserve items may be borrowed on a 1 day (24 hour) loan. These items are due back 24 hours after they are borrowed.
- Some reserve titles are available on a 3 day loan.
- If you borrow a course reserve item, please return it to LIB room 109, not the book return bins.
- All returned items will be quarantined for three days (72 hours). Check items in Ares to find out the date that they will be available for loan again.
- Login to Ares to find materials for your courses.
- Your instructor may also have made Ares course reserve materials available via CourseLink.
- If you need access to course materials that are not currently available, please contact your instructor.
- Please place materials on course reserve through Ares or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Ares enables access to a wide range of course materials, from library-licensed content such as e-books, book chapters, journal articles and streaming media, to faculty-owned documents and openly available content on the internet.
- All material posted in Ares is copyright and AODA compliant and is able to be directly integrated into CourseLink.
- For the fall 2020 semester, the library has attempted to acquire electronic versions of course reserve books whenever possible, however many titles are not available electronically due to publisher restrictions.
- Physical books may also be placed on reserve for Fall 2020 courses, and will be made available on a one-day loan to students who can pick them up in person at the library. Some items may be placed on a 3 day loan, if requested by the instructor.
- Physical reserve items will be quarantined for 72 hours upon return, so availability will be limited.
