The Ease of E-Reserves
The Library staff would like to ask Faculty to remind their students of the extensive and easy access of items placed on E-reserve. All articles that are requested for reserves are available via E-reserve to students registered for the class from any computer.
Students can read or print an E-reserve in their room, at home, or in the Bridges Lab. Students will need their username and password to access these reserves, but most importantly, they will need to type “ACAD\” as the domain in front of their username or in the domain field to access these files. A hard copy of the reserve item is also held at the Library’s Circulation Desk should students prefer to photocopy pages. However, as with all Library transactions, students must have their Wingate University ID card to use reserve items. With the addition of smart classrooms on campus, Faculty members might consider taking a few minutes to access the Library homepage and show their students how to locate an E-reserve during class.
For Faculty members with access to a scanner, Moodle is an option for posting journal articles and the like. Faculty members who do so are responsible for copyright compliance and librarians cannot scan articles.
