LEO: How Do I - Access eReserves

eReserves are required course readings made available to students through the online classroom. eReserve items do not become available until the first day of class and are unavailable once the class ends.

What is the difference between eReserves, eReadings, and the Webliography?

  • eReadings are textbook chapters that are placed in your classroom by UMUC Textbook Services.
  • eReserves are additional required readings, provided through the UMUC Library.
  • The Webliography is a list of resources freely available on the Web.

Students can access eReserves in two ways:

Option 1: Access from your online classroom:
  • Go to Content > Course Resources > eReserves where you will find the eReserve items for that class.
Option 2: Access from the eReserve System:
  • Log directly into the eReserves System with your UMUC username and password where you will find a list of your current classes. Click on a class to view the eReserve items for that particular class.
