Reserve Materials - E and P (Electronic and Print)
eReserves is an electronic course reserve collection, the online version of the library's traditional print reserve collection.
Your students can use an Access Card and library PIN to access course materials on eReserve through LOIS, including:
Your course outlines, lecture notes, sample exams, sample student papers, and other scanned personal material
Links to articles you've found in library databases such as InfoTrac or ProQuest. You can also link students to a search strategy you've set up in a database, such as "patient education and diabetes," in InfoTrac. Every time a student accesses your search strategy the database runs a fresh search and produces a list of newly added articles.
Web sites you've selected
Scanned copies of articles or chapters from a book, provided you obtain copyright permission (official permission to use the copy from the authorized owner) after the first semester on reserve
Here's an eReserve entry in LOIS. Click the title to see how it works:
eReserves continues to grow. In 2005, the library provided electronic access to materials for 16 classes in 9 departments. eReserve materials were accessed 4,753 times over the course of the year!
Find more information about eReserves on the SCC library home page.
Students Need Textbooks
Your students need access to required textbooks to succeed in school. The SCC library reserve collection loans students a copy of their textbook for a short-term (nearly 4,000 times in the first 2 weeks of Spring 2006!) The library materials budget is increasingly used to purchase textbooks rather than needed general circulating materials and reference books. Can you send a copy of your current textbook to the library reserve desk? Search your shelves, confer with your colleagues, or ask your textbook rep. and bring your current textbook to the library reserve desk. Email Yolanda Escobar with questions about print reserves.
