Selected readings are available via Electronic Reserves (E-Reserves) on the Web. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents. See Software Requirements for further requirements for accessing e-reserves, including instructions for off-campus access.
Documents are available for viewing or printing. If you are unable to locate your reserve reading by searching for it using CourseID and/or Instructor on the E-Reserves system, follow the directions below for Finding Readings on Print Reserve.
For visually challenged students or students with special needs, please see Accessibility for more information about how to access e-reserves.
If you experience problems, particularly if the screen appears blank when attempting to view an E-Reserves document, your browser is probably not configured to view PDF documents. For help, call the IT Response Center at 962-HELP or email them at email@example.com.
Not all reserve readings are available via E-Reserves. If you are unable to find your class readings using the E-Reserves system, search Paper or Media Reserves. Search by course ID or instructor to find the call number of the reserve item. Then, bring the call number for the reading (usually a number beginning with an "X") and your UNC One Card to the Reserve Desk to check out the reading. Library books on reserve are also available for use in house in the reserve reading room.
Books and photocopies at the UL Reserve Desk are designated with one of the following circulation periods: 2 hours, 24 hours, or 7 days.
AV materials on reserve must be used in the Media Resources Center located on the lower level of the House Undergraduate Library. Because the Media Resources Center has more limited hours than the UL Reserve Desk, students need to plan ahead to use these materials.
Anyone with a valid UNC One Card may use reserve readings.
