Course reading submissions - Spring into Action

Use ARES to submit your course readings

Submit early and material will be available for students for the beginning of classes. If we need to order the material or recall it from a patron, it could take 2 weeks or more.

Ares Course Reserves allows faculty to place materials on reserve for a course, both in print or electronic form. Students enrolled in the course have access to electronic content 24/7. Course readings are integrated into MyLearning Space.

You can access Ares from the Library homepage under Course Readings.

In Ares, faculty can:

  • Create a course within Ares to centralize both physical and electronic reserve access for students
  • Submit physical reserve requests (books, personal copies, exams, etc.)
  • Submit electronic reserve requests for articles, book chapters, and other materials from library resources
  • Upload other documents
  • Clone readings from a previous semester
  • Cross-list readings with another faculty

Benefits of using Ares:
