ECR Basics

With CSU Michael Schwartz Library's Electronic Course Reserve (ECR) system, course reading and media materials are available to CSU students and faculty at all hours and anywhere there is internet access.

ECR items are submitted to the Library's Digital Production Unit by CSU professors. The materials are prepared in several different ways. Files already in electronic format are easily put into the system. Printed documents are scanned and processed into accessible pdf documents before being placed on ECR. Audio and video files are digitized and streamed for playback on a variety of devices. Links to books and media materials reserved by faculty for classes are integrated into ECR as well.

Users may choose to search for the reserved item by the professor's name, by course number or course name. Then the item may be read from the monitor, printed, or saved. 

With the right hardware, software and proper configuration, users can access ECR from any computer on or off campus which has access to the Michael Schwartz Library's homepage.

Note: Access to course material is password protected for use only by those students currently enrolled in the course.
