ARES for Library Reserves and a new Fair Use policy
The Drexel University Libraries has a new system in place for faculty to request and manage materials on course reserves. The system, called ARES, is accessed through the Blackboard Learn shell for each course. Students will then be able to get to the materials directly in the Blackboard Learn course shell for their class.
Details about the new system and guidance on how to use it is available on the Libraries' newly updated Putting Material on Reserve page.
Also on that page is the new Fair Use policy that the Libraries has developed with the guidance of the Drexel University Office of General Counsel. The new policy, which reflects current best practices, explains how course reserve requests are assessed using Fair Use provisions of U. S. copyright law.
Faculty in the humanities and social sciences with questions about using Ares or the new policy may contact me and I will work with Laura Chance, our Reserves Coordinator, to answer any question.
