E-Reserves assists faculty and teaching staff with providing supplementary course reading material for students via Carmen. The Libraries e-reserves staff will negotiate copyright royalties on your behalf, establish links to online journal articles and other digital resources that students can access both on and off-campus, and create and link pdfs for supplemental print materials, such as book chapters and journal articles. Faculty and teaching staff who wish to create their own links to library resources in Carmen are encouraged to follow the Making Links to Library Resources from Within Carmen Course Sites Instructions, so that students may access the materials from off-campus.
Faculty and teaching staff may request that any particular book or item which does not qualify for e-reserves be physically placed on closed reserve for a class. Items may be dropped off at any OSU Library Circulation Desk. Please see our Closed Reserve website for additional information. To place items on reserve, please also complete our online Paper Reserves Form.

It also serves as a platform for finding and sharing such resources and insights. Visit the Toolkit at http://library.osu.edu/toolkit.
