How e-Reserve works
You tell us what resources you want your
students to read and library staff will:
• Source the requested items
• Review copyright and licence requirements
• Request copyright permission if necessary
• Advise you when processing is complete.
There’s no need to supply the item, a citation
will do.
Benefits of using e-Reserve

via Blackboard or the library’s webpage with
a simple OASIS sign-on

• Easy access for off-campus, offshore and
OUA students
via Blackboard or the library
website with a single sign-on
through OASIS.

copyright and licence conditions for you.

Alternatively, you can email your reading list to [email protected] Please provide:
• Details of the Curtin units for which the resource is needed, e.g. Introduction to

• A citation for the item, e.g. article author/s (year) article title, editor/s, book/journal
title, volume/issue/chapter/page numbers
• A web address for the item if it is on the Internet.
Once library staff have checked the copyright and licence requirements of the items you
have requested they will:
• Automatically upload items that do not require copyright permission
• Advise you of your options if a copyright issue exists.
You will be emailed when your items have been added to e-Reserve with instructions
on how to link to them from Blackboard.
Because most copyright limits operate at the University level, not the unit level, Curtin
policy prohibits copyright material on Blackboard - it must be made available through
e-Reserve and can then be linked to from Blackboard. Further information on copyright
at Curtin can be found at: http://copyright.curtin.edu.au/index.cfm.
