Electronic Reserves

The Health Sciences Library discontinued its eReserves service of linking or scanning and posting readings to Carmen on behalf of instructors. While HSL staff will no longer post or link readings to Carmen courses, we do provide assistance with identifying stable links that can be added to Carmen courses.

The HSL website provides information on linking to articles in Carmen. Additional copyright help is available through University Libraries Copyright Resources Center.
