These are items your students will be able to access directly through D2L - they'll be taken directly to your course's page in the course reserve management system when they click on Library > Course Reserve from within the class. Electronic reserve material can be accessed and read online from this page.

If you choose to upload your own materials directly to course reserves, you are responsible for OCR. University Libraries have ScannX scanners available for you to use with OCR technology for creating PDFs.

If you have a student that needs further assistance, please refer them to the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD).
These are items your students will be able to see on your course's page in the course reserve management system when they click on Library > Course Reserve from within the class in D2L. However, to access them, students will have to come view them in person at the WCU Libraries.
You can make full books available to your students at the Library Reserve Desk. If the WCU Libraries do not own a copy, you can supply a personal copy for the semester if one is available.
If you are using items from a course taught before Fall 2016, please email Course Reserves (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you would like to copy items from one section to another in the same semester, or copy items from a previously taught course that had reserves set up in Ares into a current one you can use the instructions in this tutorial. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
