Update on E-Reserves and Blackboard

For the spring 2004 semester e-reserves will once again be available both from the library website and in Blackboard.

The library is in the process of implementing a library management system (Ex Libris) that includes an e-reserves module. When Ex Libris is ready for use(probably for the fall 2004 semester), faculty will have two library-supported options for e-reserves: Blackboard and Ex Libris, both of which require authentication.

Requiring authentication for access to e-reserves satisfies copyright provisions with which the library must comply. The library is advocating Blackboard as an access point for e-reserves because Blackboard currently offers authentication and because virtually every Duke student (almost 10,000 current users) is familiar with Blackboard.

Faculty are not required to use Blackboard; it is only one of a variety of options for making course materials available to students.
