Use the Dacus Library eReserves Service for Blackboard

Faculty using Blackboard can request certain materials from the library to be placed on e-reserve. Those resources can be made available to students via a link from within Blackboard. Links can be made available within Blackboard to the many full-text databases to which the library subscribes. With over 30,000 full-text access journals, faculty are able to point students to any reading for which Winthrop has already paid access. Databases like JSTOR and Academic Search Premier provide legally permissible ways to use e-reserves. Contact Dacus Library for more information.
