ARES Course Reserves

Getting to Your Reserve Items

Purdue University Fort Wayne Library uses the Ares course reserve system, accessed via Blackboard, to provide electronic reserve materials to students. By using Ares, faculty can manage all aspects of reserve content and link it directly into your course.

Physical items such as books, DVDs, or other non-electronic items can be placed on reserve by a faculty member and accessed by students at the Service Desk on the library first floor. These are typically available for 2 hour checkout, not to the leave the library, and require your Mastodon Card for access.  Instructors set the length of checkout and provide these materials to the library for reserve.
