Library Computer Classroom 2
Learn how E-Reserves are made on campus, and about the many benefits our students experience because of a new process. E-Reserve documents are an ever present aspect of student learning at CSU. Responsibility for the development of these important course materials transferred to the Inter-Library Loan department in the summer of 2009. With this change came an entirely new approach to creating PDF based documents. Not only do E-Reserve documents follow current law regarding Copyright and Fair Use, they are accessible to students with disabilities and Universally Designed to enable search, copy and paste, reflow, and text-to-speech.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goals of this session are to disseminate knowledge on how to create Universally Designed PDF documents while following applicable Fair Use and Copyright laws, as well as to publicize the successes of the Inter-Library Loan department’s new approach to creating E-Reserves. Our targeted audience includes faculty, librarians, creators of course materials, those involved with disability services and e-text creation, and anyone else interested in Copyright, Fair Use, or Universal Design for Learning practices.
