Instructors don't need to use e-reserves in order to share readings and other course materials with students. However, there are several things you should keep in mind if you are posting readings to ELMS yourself, such as conducting a fair use analysis of PDFs made from works protected by copyright. For more information, please consult the Best Practices for Posting Readings to ELMS document created by the Libraries' Copyright Discussion Group.
