ERes is an electronic reserves software program that enables students to access linked journal articles from the Library’s subscription databases, scanned book chapters and journal articles, and other materials that faculty may place on the Course Reserves Collection as required course readings.
Access to ERes is restricted, on a course by course basis, to currently enrolled Hunter College students. To ensure compliance with current copyright restrictions, students will be asked to provide a password to enter the ERes course page for their course(s). Passwords will be provided to students by their professors at the beginning of the semester.

Users should write down the call number, and then request the material at the Course Reserve desk located on the 2nd floor in the Main Campus Library or at the Circulation desks at the branch libraries.
