About Electronic Reserves

Electronic Reserves provides online access to selected course-related materials on Reserves for specific LLU courses. These materials are available only to LLU students enrolled in the course.

To View and Print E-Reserve materials, you need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. Adobe Reader is free software for viewing and printing Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Due to computer system variations, it is strongly recommended that you attempt access well in advance of assignment deadlines.

Faculty are asked to be aware of established deadlines and required information for copyright permission in order to decrease processing time. Course reserve requests should be submitted well in advance of the beginning of the term to ensure all material is processed and available in a timely matter. For further assistance or questions on Course Reserves, contact the Circulation desk at extension 47550 or (909) 558-4550.
