WVU Library resources for instructional designers at WVU's Teaching and Learning Commons


Reserve Policies

Faculty log into the Reserve system using their standard Library log on.  They will see a list of classes they are teaching for the current semester with the items on eReserves or Print Reserves listed within each class listing.


  • eReserves allow faculty to place materials such as articles, book chapters and media on the eReserves & Reserves page of the Libraries web pages.  Students may then access the materials by logging into the eReserve page and accessing those classes for which they are registered.  Most materials on electronic reserve are converted to Adobe Acrobat PDF files.


  • Not all material may be added to eReserves.  It shall be the responsibility of the eReserves staff to determine if material requested for eReserve should be added to Print Reserve.


  • Electronic documents can be accepted in formats such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or .pdf.  Please contact eReserves staff to ensure that any other format is acceptable. 


Media eReserves

  • Items are streamed via a secure off-campus web service


  • Items placed on Media eReserves must have a form submitted for every semester, even if the material has been on reserve previously


  • Parts 1-3 of the form need to be filled out for items owned by the library.  Please fill in section 3, explanation of education purpose, completely and thoughtfully.  For other material, the entire form must be completed.
