Electronic reserves are provided through Blackboard for items that are NOT available through an online database provided by ECU Libraries*.
*ECU faculty may provide permalinks directly to articles that are available in our online databases. Not sure how to best do this? Consult our FAQ for creating stable links
How many? There is no limit to the number of items you can place on electronic reserve. Faculty members are responsible for obtaining and keeping the copyright for all materials placed on reserve.
How long? Due to copyright laws, all electronic reserves will be removed from the course at the end of the semester unless faculty members explicitly request they be continued for the following semester.
