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

Managing requests

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.
