eReserve and Closed Reserve are services that facilitate student access to course reading materials.
A central repository for storing scanned documents to support teaching and learning. The service makes reading material available to students whilst helping the University meet its obligations under the Copyright Act 1968 (Cwlth). eReserve should be used for important readings that are either not available electronically from the Library or are only available in print. If you scan or save copyrighted material, you must use eReserve to make it available in Blackboard.
