all about eReserve

eReserve provides digitised readings for students to access required subject materials.
eReserve readings are generally book chapters or journal articles that have been scanned and uploaded so that you are able to find them via Primo Search, or via an Interact link to the reading.

Finding eReserve items
You can find your eReserve readings by:
  • entering your subject code on the Search Reserve page, or 
  • entering your subject code into the search box on the Library homepage, clicking on the subject reserve option (above the Primo Search bar)
    • to view a reading, select a reading from the results list, and click the 'view online' option.
In most instances you will have to enter your CSU login details before you can access the resource.
In some cases subject readings may be emailed to you directly by the eReserve coordinator when there are issues with copyright.

At busy times of the year there may be some delays in eReserve materials becoming available. If you think your resources should be available on the library website and aren't, please contact us.

Reserve vs. eReserve
Reserve is different from eReserve. Reserve refers to physical materials that are in high-demand, such as books, DVDs and other audio-visual items. These items are usually kept behind or close to the Ask Us desk on each campus library and are available for short term use only.

If you have an Reserve question please contact us.
