Activate your summer class materials on e-reserves

Posted on May 10, 2012

If you are a faculty member who has previously had materials on the library’s electronic reserves system and would like to activate your summer classes, contact Jenny Jensen (jensnjen@mnstate.edu or 477-2342) in the library. She will send you a paper copy of the materials you have had on electronic reserves and we will be able to re-activate those materials. Additional materials may be submitted using the electronic submission form.

For faculty who are new to e-reserves, it is not too late to begin putting your materials in the library’s electronic reserves system for your classes. The advantage of using e-reserves is that your students can access your course reserves materials 24/7 from virtually anywhere, and multiple students can access the materials at the same time.
