E-Reserves is an electronic reserves software program that enables students to access copies of library-owned scanned book chapters and journal articles that are not available online through other means, and other materials that faculty may place on the Course Reserves Collection as required course readings.
Access to E-Reserves is restricted, on a course by course basis, to currently enrolled Hunter College students. To ensure compliance with current copyright restrictions, students may be asked to provide a password to enter the E-Reserves course page for their course(s). These passwords will be provided to students by their professors at the beginning of the semester.
When books and other materials are not available electronically, a link on the E-Reserves page will lead users to the Library’s online catalog screen where they will be able to obtain the call number of the item if it is available in print at the library and check the status of the item. Users should write down the call number, and then request the material at the Course Reserve desk located on the 3rd floor in the Main Campus Library or at the Circulation desks at the branch libraries.
