Basics of Reserves
Three ways to provide content for your students:
- eReserves (Electronic Reserves) – documents and web links uploaded to your CILearn course site
- Print Reserves – textbooks and other books/videos for library checkout (2hr, 4hr, overnight)
- Streaming Media - videos uploaded to your CILearn course site
The Library is available to help create an electronic selection of resources/readings available 24/7 to enhance student learning. We call this service eReserves.
The Library will:
- scan materials, make them screen-reader accessible, and include copyright/fair use information
- create direct links to journal articles available in full-text from the Library’s subscription databases, including proxy address so no additional login is required
- upload them into your CILearn course section for you!
The Library holds textbooks provided by faculty members and other materials on Print Reserve for students to check out for 2hrs, 4hrs, or overnight, thus providing access to all the students in the course. A direct link to the Library catalog placed in your CILearn course shows live availability of Print Reserves.
The Library is available to help stream movies, documentaries, and other recorded media available 24/7 to enhance student learning.
The Library will:
- Convert any DVD or VHS owned by the library into a Flash video
- Create links to streamed video directly in your CILearn course section for you!
Not sure if your use of a document, link, textbook, book, or video falls within the fair use exception to copyright? Use the CSU Fair Use Factors Checklist (PDF, 58.4KB) to find out.
