What is Electronic Reserves?

Electronic Reserves is a web based application designed to enhance access to reserved materials. Electronic Reserve allows students to view or print selected full text material submitted by faculty to assist in classroom instruction.
Faculty must specifically request that their reserved items be available full text online. Only  items such as quizzes, notes, or articles can be scanned and placed online. Entire books cannot be placed online. (See Fair Use Guidelines for Electronic Reserves) Electronic Reserve items are in PDF format.  You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view or print items in PDF format.

The library policy for Electronic Reserve is taken from the fair use provisions of United States Copyright Act of 1976. Electronic Reserves is restricted to SU students, faculty, and staff.
