Instead of placing physical materials on reserve in the library, where copies may be limited and time schedules may be restricted, instructors can request that items be made available online. This includes
- Book Chapters
- Audio CDs
The library does most of the work. All you have to do is provide a list of the materials you need, and they assemble electronic copies. They even pay for copyright releases, if required! Some electronic copies are created by scanning paper documents, but many can be made available by linking to online databases to which the library subscribes.
