How to manage E-Reserves requests
The E-Reserves Request allows faculty members (or anyone who would be requesting new reserve items) to request items be placed on e-reserve for their courses. Once requests have been submitted, library staff can then log into LibGuides to manage them and add the items to the e-reserves module.
Submitting the E-Reserves request form
Your E-Reserves request form can be accessed by adding /er_request.php to the end of your LibGuides URL. For example: springylib.libguides.com/er_request.php. You will also find links to the form under Content > E-Reserves under:
- The Requests tab
- The Settings tab, in the Request Form panel
The Requests tab is where you process items that have been submitted via the E-Reserves Request Form, which is where faculty can request to add items to their courses. Once a request is received, staff can begin the work of reviewing and processing the items.
Customize the E-Reserves request form
The Request Form section of the Settings page includes some basic settings for your E-Reserves request form, including setting a statement that must be checked before a submission, who will receive an email notification for new submissions, and a password for the form.
