Abstract

In late 1996, Kent State University Libraries began to research electronic reserves software in order to conduct a pilot project.

The software chosen was ERes 2.0, developed at Santa Clara University by Philip Kesten and Slaven Zivkovic. This article describes how and why ERes was chosen and how the system was adapted for use at Kent State University. The integration with the OPAC and full-text databases, as well as the pitfalls encountered during the pilot project is detailed.

Also described is the experience of learning to scan print documents efficiently.
