Reserves Services allows you to set aside books, journal articles, personal copies and media materials for their courses. To place materials on reserve, choose one or more of these options:
ERes: The library’s simple, electronic reserves system or "ERes" allows you to place articles, book excerpts, audio or video clips online on a password protected course page that students can access 24 hours a day. To see the ERes homepage, click here. For questions about ERes, contact Carla Cain, Reserves Supervisor, at email@example.com or 310.338.7695.
Reserves in the Library: You may place physical copies of both library owned and personal books, library owned and personal videos or cds on reserve for your students to use. More often, these have a 3 hour check-out period and are to be used in the library by your students. However, you can indicate an overnight check-out on specific items.
LINK+ Books: Due to copyright policy and procedures, books requested through LINK+ or Interlibrary Loan cannot be placed on reserve. However, a limited amount of material from non-LMU books can be scanned and posted to Eres.
Instructors can place a request for the library to order books to be placed on reserve by using this form: http://library.lmu.edu/forms/requestabook/
MYLMU/Connect: A link to Eres has been added to the navigation bar in your MYLMUCONNECT course module. This link is enabled when your ERes course page is created.
If you have questions about MYLMU Connect, speak with your ITA,or stop by the Faculty Innovation Center (the FIC) located on the 3rd floor of the William H . Hannon Library.
Use the Reserve Request Services Form to place items on either type of reserve.
ERes: Go to eres.lmu.edu, or find ERes on your MYLMU/Connect course page. Search by instructor or course title.Your professor should have given you a password for the course – if not, contact the Information Commons desk staff who can look it up for you, (310.338.2790)
Reserves in the Library: You may search for items on reserve by instructor name, or by course name. To check out an item on reserve, go to the Circulation Desk on level 1 of the library. Items on reserve are to be used within the library building only. Reserve items may include library-owned books, CDs, videos, or faculty members' personal books. Upon request by an instructor, library-owed items may be removed from the library's regular collection and placed on reserve for one semester.
