BLACKBOARD TO REPLACE ELECTRONIC RESERVES AT ODU LIBRARY

The Old Dominion University Libraries will end their electronic reserves program Aug. 26, replacing it with Blackboard.

Blackboard offers a wide selection of course management options for faculty, including the ability to post materials and handouts. The move will aid in the consolidation of course-specific materials and heighten copyright compliance by limiting access to material only to students enrolled in a particular course.

In preparation for the transition to faculty-managed supplemental readings, the library has copied current e-reserve material to CD, which faculty can use to relocate files to Blackboard. The CDs can be picked up at the circulation services desk through Friday, Sept. 8. After that date, they will be mailed to faculty campus addresses.

The move of electronic reserves readings to Blackboard will have no effect on the reserve book collection and services in Perry Library.
