As part of our efforts to increase efficiency and eliminate duplication of services, the University Libraries will be changing our Course Reserves service. We plan to phase out our electronic-reserves service (ARES) by the end of this semester. Classes in Fall 2016 are still able to use this service, but not classes in Spring 2017 and beyond.
Service for hard-copy reserves will continue as usual. Furthermore, this change does not affect the electronic journal databases or Pilot.
For material that is currently on your e-reserves site, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you know which files you would like us to download onto a Flash drive for you. Alternatively, you are always welcome to access your course site and download whatever files you wish to save.
Please link to library resources in Pilot whenever possible. This helps us keep track of which journals and other electronic resources are being accessed. Faculty, make sure your students can access Pilot materials off-campus – use the Permalink button available in every catalog record to generate EZProxy links! Check out our “Linking to Library Resources in Pilot” page for useful tips: www.libraries.wright.edu/services/pilot.pdf.
Stay tuned for further updates and announcements concerning these changes to the Libraries’ Course Reserves service.
Faculty, staff, and instructors, we appreciate your understanding and look forward to continuing to work with you toward student success!
