This tutorial will show you how to link to e-Reserves in Blackboard.
Submitting e-Reserve Requests and Confirmation Email
Before getting started, you should have already:
1. Submitted an e-Reserve request for each item that you are placing on electronic reserve. If you have questions on how to submit requests please see our tutorial located here.
2. Received a confirmation email with an URL, letting you know that your e-Reserves are processed and available (note: you will only receive one Blackboard activation email per course). Please keep this email and link handy as you will be using them in this tutorial.
Log into Blackboard using your Mason Net ID and Password, and then click 'Courses' from the menu at the top of the page.
Choose the Course where you are adding e-Reserves.
From the Blackboard left hand content menu, click the '+' sign to add a link.
Choose 'Web Link' from the options listed.
In the Name box, name the link (we recommend using 'e-Reserves').
In the URL box, copy and paste the URL from the e-Reserves confirmation email you received earlier.
Make sure to check the box 'Available to Users.'
You should now see your link listed in the left hand menu.
Note: Be sure your e-Reserves link is not hidden. If hidden, a box with a line across it will appear beside the link. Click 'Show Link' to make the link available.
Testing Your e-Reserves
You should be able to click on your link and see the available e-reserves for your course. That's it. You have now successfully linked to your e-Reserves in Blackboard!
