The EOS Course Reserves module enhances the academic library’s ability to provide an all-inclusive automated e-reserve solution.
The Library staff’s responsibility of managing course records, course links, and granting administrative access to instructors so they can edit their course and class records is made significantly easier with EOS Course Reserves:
- Add one or more class records to a course record
- Reserve items for a course or for individual classes
- Add media links to a course or individual classes
- Library staff and the assigned instructor can manage reserves links
- Run detailed Course Listing reports: limited by class start and end dates, sorted by course name/number, and options to include/exclude reserved items
Course Reserves Helps Instructors
With EOS Course Reserves, instructors have the freedom to view their classes and reserve collection items, view and remove re served items from their classes, and view and remove media links from outside the library collection, e.g. images and class documents (tests, answer sheets, study guides, URLs, and audio lectures). Instructors have anytime, anywhere access to their classes, so they can make real-time updates to class materials.
Course Reserves Helps Students
Students can effortlessly search for their classes, review reserved materials, and access media through the Course Search option in Web OPAC. “My Classes” is a special feature in the Course Reserves module that allows instructors and students to view their specific class and course information after the class record has been updated with the instructor and student roster by the library staff.
EOS Course Reserves is a solution that every academic library can benefit from and that librarians, instructors, and students alike can appreciate. It does more than just reserve course work and information for a class. EOS Course Reserves effectively coordinates course reserves so that library staff can manage the process better, instructors can control their course reserves with zero delay-time, and students can easily access class information from anywhere, at anytime.
