The Class Reserves & Media Services Desk is located on the lower level of Raynor Library. Class Reserves holds supplemental class material provided by your professor. These materials are listed in your professor’s ARES class list. Reserve holdings include, but are not limited to, copies of class readings, previous tests and or other materials as requested by your professor. These items may be available for check-out or for electronic download via Ares.
Access the login page for ARES, and then use your Checkmarq username and password to login. (The first time you log in to ARES you will be asked to fill out a short registration form—click “For Students”)
- Search in ARES by your professor’s last name (you may also search by department or course number, but by professor is recommended).
- Add the course to your ARES account by clicking on the green “+” and enter the password provided by your professor.
- After you add the course to your account, it will show up on your main page for the duration of the semester
All physical Class Reserve items are available for check-out from the Reserve Services desk in the lower level of Raynor Library during the library’s business hours.
Physical reserve items may be items owned by the library or items supplied by the professor that are available for a limited check-out period. These items are all located behind the Reserve Services desk in the lower level of the Raynor Library, and are denoted by a blue flag on the ARES class list.
Electronic reserve items may include links to articles, web-pages, or PDF files for individual download. These items are accessible through the ARES class list for your course. Electronic items are denoted by either a .pdf symbol or a small blue/green browser icon. Clicking on the title will take you the next page where you can access the material by clicking the link “View This Item.”
- Ares is a database that manages the supplementary material (books, articles, videos, etc.) professors assign to their classes. Material can be offered in its physical form (for a limited loan period) or electronically (for individual download by students). Each semester professors create or clone their courses in Ares and then submit items for reserve. Students access these course lists using the password their professor has established.
