Electronic Reserves for Students
What are electronic reserves? Electronic reserves are items, such as papers, articles, powerpoint slides, etc, that are made available electronically through the library’s online catalog by a professor for their course.
What do I need to use electronic reserves? All you need is a working computer, an Internet connection, and a web browser like Netscape or Internet Explorer. Please note that you cannot use the AOL-provided browser to access electronic reserves. If you do not have Netscape or Internet Explorer, you can download them free from the following web sites:
Internet Explorer: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp
Problem: I’m getting a blank print out.
Solution: Use the printer icon on the Adobe toolbar located near the top of the Internet browser.
Problem: My print out is backwards.
Solution: Click on the printer icon on the Adobe toolbar. Make sure the "Print as image" box is selected. It is located in the top right hand corner.
Problem: When I click on a file, it says I need a program or something to view electronic reserves?
Solution: You need to download Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader. Here is a link: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
