Faculty Reserve Request Form (Geosciences Library)

Electronic Reserves


Oncourse is now the platform for electronic reserves and the E-Reserves site has been fully phased out. Files stored on E-reserves will remain accessible to faculty throughout the 2013 summer session. Instructions for using Oncourse and answers to frequently asked questions about electronic reserves can be found here. However, library staff will still be available to assist with the transition.
