What are eReserves?

  • eReserves are electronic course materials such as journal articles, eBooks, streaming videos, or scanned physical items
  • eReserves can be open access (freely available online), library licensed electronic material (such as an article found in one of our databases), or material owned by FSU Libraries or the instructor
  • Any items placed on eReserve must comply with all applicable copyright laws
