Course Reserves - Instructor Manual

A basic how-to guide for Ares, our new Course Reserves system

Checking the Status of a Reserve Request

Once you have submitted the web form for a reserve item the status of that submission will be available on the course homepage in the Course Reserves system:

As Reserves staff processes your request the status of the item will change until the time the item is available either on Electronic Reserve or at the Circulation Desk. While instructors can see the status of items that are not yet available, students will only be able to see item records for those materials that are available. 

**NOTE the processing time for reserve items is typically three days, although it may take longer at the beginning of the semester, when Reserves staff is busiest.
