In Demand: Use of E-Reserve System at University and Research Libraries.
An increase in technological advances has provided opportunities to improve course reserves systems at research libraries. In this paper, we explore the usage of the e-Reserve system during the course of a semester at the Gottesman Libraries at Teachers College, Columbia University. The results include the types of frequent requests and the number of courses with learning materials. The results revealed, among others, that requests were most frequent during the start of the semester and the system is used more by faculty than students. We also found that there is a greater demand for recently published items. The results indicate that e-Reserve systems should be designed with students’ needs at the forefront and research libraries should consider the publication year and accessibility they make purchasing decisions.
