Learn about Course Reserves and how they can contribute to your teaching and learning experiences.

Access is here!

Our Student Guide to Ares answers all these questions:
  • How do I create an Ares account?
  • How do I search for classes in Ares, and add classes to the My Courses List?
  • How do I see what materials my instructor has on reserve, and view these materials?
  • How do I remove a class from the My Courses List?
  • Can I be automatically notified when new course reserves items are added to a class in My Courses?
  • What is a Hot List, and how do I use it?

If you are encountering an issue using Safari or Chrome, we recommend using Firefox as your browser. Make sure you are using the VPN as well.
