Course Reserves Changes: Fall 2014

George Mason University - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 18:45

During the summer, Mason Libraries developed and implemented a new course reserves process to better serve Mason students and faculty. The goals are to simplify student access to e-Reserves, to streamline the reserve request process for faculty, and to provide a more consistent course reserve experience across all campuses. Changes include:

  • Students now access their e-Reserves directly through their course pages on Blackboard.
  • Faculty now place all course reserve requests through ILLiad.
  • More detailed information for faculty on using the new process is available at Course Reserves (Instructors).
