What is Course Reserves?
Course Reserves is the university's resource list management system. It is a comprehensive, dynamic resource list tool, which allows lecturers to create off-campus links to library resources such as journal articles and books/eBooks, digitized book chapters, as well as freely available online content.
Note: Google Chrome is the recommended browser for use with Course Reserves and onQ.
