E-Reserves Reminder

Just a reminder to submit E-Reserves requests soon if you'd like the library to create an electronic reserves page for your fall classes. I'd be happy to help with questions, or you can contact Pat Seeley, our reserves coordinator (p-seel@umn.edu or 612-626-5967). Read on for more information:

Since its inception in 2002, the University Libraries' electronic reserve system has enabled over 300 faculty to place materials on reserve in hundreds of courses. E-Res, as the system is known, accommodates many different formats--pdf, jpg, mp3, and direct links to the Internet--and is a quick and convenient way for instructors to present a wide variety of course materials online to their students.

The Bio-Medical Library invites faculty to use the E-Res system when planning your courses for this fall. We encourage you to submit materials at least two weeks prior to the start of the semester in order for materials to appear online by the first day of classes. Submissions may be made by filling out a request form in person at the library or using the online request form at http://www.lib.umn.edu/pdf/eressubform.pdf.
