Faculty members may place library materials on Reserve for use by their students. Reserves are shelved at the Circulation Desk and are available for use within the Library for short periods of time. Materials on Reserve are noted in the online catalog--searchable by the instructor's name, course number, course name, department name, or words in the title. Faculty Reserve Request forms are available through ARES or they may be picked up at the Circulation Desk. For questions, contact Mrs. Eva Colbert in the Circulation Department by telephone at 443-885-3477 or x1710.
What is ARES?
ARES is a platform that allows us to automate access to course reserves, providing 24-hour access to digital reserves as well as managing access for print reserves. It is fully integrated with Blackboard.
How can it help my class?
ARES allows instructors to submit print or digital materials to the library, who enter the materials into the ARES system. Only students enrolled in the appropriate class will be able to access the materials using their Morgan State credentials.
Who can use ARES?
All Morgan State instructors are welcome to submit materials to ARES.
How do I get started?
Contact Renise Johnson (Renise.Johnson@morgan.edu / (443) 885-1723) for more information, or to submit materials.
