Instructors can place print materials and media on course reserve for use by students. E-reserves (online video, PDFs or links to e-articles) are made available to students through ICON. Support for ICON is available here from ITS. By giving Course Reserve staff access to ICON, they can add and manage library resources and course content.  For more information, please visit ICON for Course Reserve
