    ReservesDirect is free, open-source software that manages electronic and physical library materials reserved for university courses.

    Core software features include:

    - Free, open-source software built to run on open standards like PHP, MySQL, and Apache.

    - Enables both instructors and library staff to manage reserve lists.

    - Allows users to upload files, link to online materials, and fax documents directly into the system as PDFs.

    - Integrates with the library’s catalog, providing convenient access to all course materials, physical and electronic, in one place.

    - Allows instructors to reactivate reserve lists for classes they’ve taught before.

    - Can be deployed in single-library or multi-library environments.

    - Is “skinnable” for customized look and feel.

    - Can be implemented as a completely self-service system where instructors manage all of their own reserves materials, or as a full-service system where library staff manage everything for the instructors, or as a combination of the two.

    - Includes other features such as team-teaching support, course cross-listings, item sorting, item annotation, and the ability to export reserve lists to courseware, such as Blackboard.
