USING E-RESERVES: ETS: LIBRARIES MAKING ACCESS EASY!
For Classes and MCC Committees.
The E-reserves system allows your students to access course and research materials on the web 24x7. This new service is a tool for faculty who want students to have ready access to course reserve materials at the click of a mouse. If you have documents such as PowerPoint presentations, class notes, class syllabuses, solutions, video clips, audio clips or articles that you'd like your students to be able to access from the web, both on and off campus, Electronic Reserves is your solution. Materials may be password protected to limit use to your classes or individual sections. In addition to course materials, MCC Committees are able to password protect materials and share them by utilizing the E-reserves system. Facilitated by Ellen Mancuso, ETS Libraries.
