  • 2.  Benefits of the new system  Navigating to Ares  Creating an account  Adding reserve items  Advanced features
  • 3.  Unlike the old reserve system, everyone who would like to access the reserves needs to create an account. By having the students create accounts, instructors can check the usage of a particular item and see at the student level who is using particular materials.  Professors now have the option of uploading materials directly to the system, which should greatly decrease the processing time.  Allows proxy users (such as a teaching assistant) to manage class accounts.  Provides space for chats and message boards.
