I'm a faculty member. Can you tell me about e-reserves?

The library’s Reserves Coordinator can assist with making e-Reserves available through Canvas for your students to access online. Journal articles and book chapters can be digitized—in compliance with copyright and Fair Use law—from the Emerson library’s print collections and uploaded to Canvas as PDFs. Persistent links to Emerson-accessible e-books, online articles, and online journals can be linked to a course’s Canvas page. These PDFs and links provide students with access to e-Reserves on- or off-campus, and saves the cost of buying a book for the use of a chapter or two. Requests that do not comply with Fair Use law will be denied, and you may instead be encouraged to place the book on reserve at the library.
