Accessing eReserve materials with a direct link

If your instructor has assigned electronic reserve materials but is not using the Blackboard course component, your instructor will send a direct web address (URL). If you double-click on the URL in your e-mail, you will be asked to enter authentication credentials (unless you are already logged into Blackboard with the same browser) before the readings page will open. Use your Z-ID and password.
