The Course Details page has the course information.  Underneath it are the reserve items.  Reserve items have an ID, title, author (if applicable), an inactive date, status and tag.  The listing of items defaults by title, but can be sorted by author by clicking on the sort by drop down arrow.  

All reserve items will remain active until the date listed. After that date, the items become inactive.  They will still be accessible to instructors but not students.  The status box indicates if the item is available or awaiting processing.  Inactive items will have a status of item removed from reserves. 

Ares does not use folders but tags to group items together. Tagged items also appear as "bread crumbs" inbetween the Course Details and Reserve Items boxes.

There are two types of tags for course reserve items: Instructor and Personal.

  • Instructor tags can only be added by instructors.  To tag an item, click on a title,  and in the Instuctor Tags box, input how you want the item grouped. These are viewable to the instructor and the students enrolled in the course.
  • Personal tags can be added to items by the instructor and student to organize readings how they want. Personal tags are private and only viewable only by the person who tagged them 

Icons indicate the type of format an item is:
