Library Response to COVID-19

With the move to online instruction, the library offers electronic course materials to support instruction and research.

“Physical” Reserves now available online

Some “physical” reserves such as books and DVDs can now be found online as e-books and e-media. To access these materials:

  • Go to Reserves link in MIDCAT
  • Type instructor’s last name
  • Click appropriate course
  • Locate e-material by title, and click title for access
    • E-books will have “[electronic resource]” in title field and “E-book” in call number field
    • E-media (i.e. Kanopy films) will have “Online” in call number field
    • Please note that while many e-materials allow for concurrent use, some only allow one user at a time
  • For more information about e-books, please access “E-books and Audiobooks” LibGuide

Some media items that were previously on physical reserve are now available via Panopto; students can log into the Course Hub to access these materials.

Electronic Reserves (ERes) still available online

ERes provides a secure platform for students to access PDFs and links to copyrighted course material (book chapters, journal articles).

PLEASE NOTE: ERes should be viewed with the following browsers: Firefox or Safari (not Chrome or Internet Explorer).
