Reserve Services for Students

The Course Reserves Service handles all print, electronic and multmedia materials that are placed on reserve for all the classes offered through Molloy College.  The Reserve/E-Reserve page can be accessed through this link.

E-Reserve offers digital copies of book chapters and journal articles that faculty would like to make available for students 24/7. Students can access E-reserve materials from anywhere with an available internet connection. E-Reserve materials can be accessed electronically through the Ares reserve system.

All reserve books and multimedia reserves are located in the ILL/Reserves/Media services area within the library.

Access to reserve materials is limited to the faculty member for a particular course as well as the students enrolled in that course for which the materials have been placed on reserve.
