Electronic Reserve Policy

The Oscar Rennebohm Library provides online course reserve services to support teaching activities at the College.

Electronic Reserves allow students and faculty easy access to documents (or online articles from the library databases) from on or off campus. We use the electronic reserves module within Blackboard, making it easy to integrate reserve readings into a course website.
