Course Reserves

This guide outlines Course Reserves services for faculty as well as student access to materials placed on Reserve.

What is Ares?

Ares is the WU Libraries eReserves system. Faculty use it to manage course materials online and students use it to access assigned readings. The courses are imported directly from the Registrar along with student enrollment; therefore instructors do not have to manually enter detailed class information. Olin Library Reserves staff can pull/scan reserve items or faculty can upload PDFs. Instructors can also import readings from previous classes.
