Fall 2016 Library Process for ANGEL Courses

The way the students access E-Reserves in ANGEL will be different starting in the fall 2016 semester. The students will need to use the library’s reserve search feature to locate their course’s list of readings.

Instructors or design staff will need to remove the current Penn State Library Tools block from the Resources Tab in ANGEL courses, and add a new block to send the students to the library reserves search page.
