The USC Libraries online Course Reserves or ARES (Automated Reserves System) is one of two systems your professor may use to provide required readings. The other is Blackboard. Take these simple steps to access Course Reserves. (Recommended: Sign into the Libraries homepage first). Note that some required textbooks are NOT available through Course Reserves. Additionally, courses are removed from your profile at the end of the semester. For comprehensive information, visit the Course Reserves Research Guide.
To locate your class, Under Student Tools, click on Search Courses
The easiest option is probably to Search by Course Number. Type in the three numbers (e.g. 150 for WRIT 150) and click Go.
Alternatively, use the drop-down menu to search by department (eg. Education) or the name of the lead instructor for the course (which may not be the professor teaching your section)
