Once a title is added to a course reserve, if the University Libraries own an electronic version, or E-book, the record will list all the databases that have the book available. Depending on the needs of your class this may serve as the only copy on reserve or as a second copy.
There are certain circumstances that the e-book version may be useful as a course reserve:
When the University Libraries own an e-book version of a title, the reserve record will have an "Access Full Text Online" section with links to all the vendors that have a copy of the title. Each vendor has slightly different restrictions on each title. All books should be visible for online reading with a stable internet connection. If students only need a section of the title, they can usually save the section as ad PDF. Here are general instructions for some of the vendors.
The University Libraries' Reserve specialists, located at all four branches, are available to work with instructors to provide access to material. For additional assistance or questions about these services, please contact:
