ERes is the library’s  Electronic Reserves System where electronic material including articles and multimedia can be retrieved 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Both hard copy (printed material such as books)  and electronic material are listed on “ERes” – The Library’s Electronic Reserves System. Besides the library, you can access reserves material from the dorm room, office, from home and from anywhere in the world 24/7. The readings are now always available; you no longer need to wait for the item to be returned, no more time limits, and  late fee charges no longer apply.  Click here for Electronic Reserves (http://pvamu.docutek.com/)


The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies, scanned images or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, a library is authorized to allow photocopying, scanning or other reproduction on the premises. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy, scanned image or other reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.” If a user makes a photocopy, scan image or other reproductions for purposes in excess of “Fair Use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

This institution reserves the right to prohibit or restrict copying if, in its judgment, copying would involve violation of copyright law.
