The Graduate Center Library will discontinue use of ERes software and cease library scanning/uploading services for spring 2012 courses. Exam reading lists will be available on ERes through February 2012. As announced last spring, Grad Center instructors must back-up or download their own files from ERes before it completely disappears on June 30, 2012. While Grad Center instructors distribute course materials in many ways, Blackboard is recommended. Blackboard is CUNY-licensed course software with robust reserve features including automated course creation and authentication through the CUNY portal. The library will continue to purchase reserve titles requested by instructors and to maintain reserve books on the library 1st floor. See the Library’s New Reserve Guide for instruction and contact your library subject liaison with questions.
