How Do I?

This guide is a series of tutorials covering very basic library research tasks.

Electronic Reserves

Professors may place electronic materials (Word documents, PDFs, etc.) on Camino, the course management system. Emery, the law school's intranet system hosts past exams and other law related materials not accessible by the public.‚Äč

If your professor is using an off-campus system, such as TWEN (WestLaw) or WebCourses (Lexis), there are tutorials for that located on their respective websites.

Print Reserves

For library, or professor-owned, non-electronic items use the library catalog to search.  In OSCAR, there is search function for course reserves.   You may search either by professor name or course name.  Note the illustration to the right.

Once you have searched for either your professor's name, or course name, you will get a search result if one exists.  Click on the search result and the catalog will list all items currently on reserve for that professor/course.  If the item has the professor's last name as the call number, then the item is professor-owned and kept at the circulation desk.
