Input to Implementation: Ares Course Reserves Process Improvements

By John Wiggins, Director of Library Services & Quality Improvement

Course reserves are now integrated into the Blackboard Learn course management system, providing a single access point for course-related materials. This change is the result of a new module, Ares, that the Libraries’ acquired and began using in fall 2012.

The new system provides numerous benefits, relieving students from waiting in line during busy times at the Circulation Desk and freeing faculty from completing multiple paper forms. Face-to-face and online students and faculty can use the Blackboard tool to gain immediate access to electronic reserves or information about print materials available at the physical library. Students and faculty can subscribe to notifications to learn when new resources are available on reserve, and faculty can renew reserves for a new term with just a few quick clicks.
