Electronic Reserves give students anywhere, anytime access to reserve readings over the web. This type of service is available now on many college campuses. Typically, faculty members submit readings the same way they would traditional paper reserves. There is no charge to the professor or the student, but the service requires significant work on the part of library staff. Electronic Reserves are easy for the faculty member to use. The library sets up web access, obtains copyright clearance, prepares the materials and uploads them. Electronic reserves are used to distribute both class handouts and journal articles, but all items must meet copyright guidelines. Only the faculty and students involved in a course can view or print the readings for that particular course. At Notre Dame, the library provides students and faculty instructional materials on how to use Electronic Reserves, and in the Fall 2002 semester over one hundred courses took advantage of the service.
