Help with eReserve


Logging on to the eReserve system

After clicking on a link to an eReserve, you will be asked to log on to the eReserve system with your library barcode and PIN.

The PDF (portable document format) files require the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available for free on the Adobe website.

Identifying eReserves

  • if material is available on eReserve, "*ELECTRONIC COPY AVAILABLE*" will appear in the display
