Covid-19: E-reserve service update

27 May 2021: As restrictions on access to print collections ease, the E-reserve team are working to provide as near normal a service as possible, although books currently on loan are not available for scanning until the book recall facility is reinstated. However, there are still a number of options available to source copyright compliant scans for teaching.

About the service

E-reserve produces copyright-compliant digital extracts of course readings for academic staff, to support learning and teaching.
