Electronic Reserves

Steely Library offers course reserves in two different formats, traditional (e.g. entire books) and electronic reserves (e.g. journal articles and single book chapters). Electronic reserves are available in Blackboard while traditional reserves are available at the third floor Public Service Desk. Electronic reserves are placed on Blackboard course pages. Students enrolled in classes will be able to directly retrieve electronic reserves in Blackboard. To make a faculty request to post an article or book chapter on your Blackboard course, please submit an online request electronically for each item.

My Library Tab

All Blackboard courses are equipped with a My Library tab that exists as a portal to basic library resources. Login to your existing Blackboard course and look for the My Library tab at the top of the page.
