New Online E-Reserves Tutorial
Offers Quick & Friendly Guidance

If you're worried that you might have difficulty using the Libraries electronic reserves, a new e-reserves tutorial takes all the mystery out of this essential academic service.

The tutorial provides easy visual and voice instruction on how to locate specific professors' course materials and individual reading assignments. The tutorial is less than two minutes long and runs in Flashplayer, which may be downloaded for free from the Macromedia website.

The e-reserves tutorial can be accessed from the frontpage of the Libraries website, from the gray left-side navigation bar, by following the path: Find Reserves > See also Flash E-reserves Tutorial.

The Libraries are grateful to the staff at the Paul Robeson Library for developing the tutorial and to the Electronic Reserves Working Group and Web Advisory Committee for offering refinements.

For more information about e-reserves policies please speak with the staff at the circulation desk of any Rutgers University library. Users can also send questions to the Ask A Librarian service, accessible from the front-page of the Libraries website in the black horizontal navigation bar.
