What are e-reserves? In e-reserves are course materials, such as articles or book chapters, supplied by your professor and scanned by the library. You can find them using your professor's name, the course number, or the course name.

Instructions for Use All e-reserves are in PDF format. You need a free PDF reader such as Foxit Reader or Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print them. Adobe Acrobat Reader was probably installed on your computer at the factory. If you need to load or upgrade Foxit or Acrobat, click an icon to reach its free download page.
