Ares (Automating Reserves) is a one-stop online resource for all course reserve materials. Molloy College Library maintains a collection of Reserves/E-Reserves for specific courses as requested by our faculty through the Canvas system. The purpose of a reserve collection is to support instruction by offering timely and efficient access to high demand course materials.
Faculty members planning to place books or articles on reserve for a semester must submit all reserve requests via Canvas. The following link: https://www.molloy.edu/canvas/ connects to the Canvas login page where faculty may select the course for which they plan to place materials in Ares. The next step is to select the Ares tab from the left-hand menu and once on the Ares page all reserve or e-reserve materials may be submitted and managed online. If the Ares page fails to appear after the Ares tab is selected, please activate Ares on the Canvas page by selecting the current semester, i.e. “Spring 2017” under the “Current Semester” tab and then click “Create Course.”
If you are planning to reuse reserve items from a previous semester, just click “Import Items” from a previously taught course. You can uncheck any items you do not want to reuse and click the “Import Items” button when done.
