Using Leganto: For Staff

What is eReserve & Reserve?

eReserve is a repository for subject readings made available electronically for reading lists. The Library eReserve team process requests and produce copyright or licence compliant readings for learning and teaching. It also manages copyright limits for print only resources across the whole University.

You must use the eReserve service in order to put any print only works online, unless you have the written permission from the copyright owner. See Leganto & Copyright.
 

Reserve is a collection of high-demand physical items made available at designated campus libraries. Print items such as prescribed textbooks are added to the print Reserve collections for short-term loans (2 hours) and to fulfil student digitisation requests. Items are returned to the main collection at the end of session.

See the Library's eReserve & Reserve webpage for more information.

 

Below are instructions for adding:

  • an existing eReserve reading,
  • a new eReserve reading from a print resource held by the Library,
  • a new eReserve reading from a print resource that we will need to source from another institution, and 
  • an item to be added to the Reserve collection for short term loan.
