The CTL just received word from the Welch Library team that the ERES (eReserves) system that's used for some summer institute courses will be offline this weekend. The official Welch statement is as follows:

As a preventive measure, Welch Medical Library's ERES course system will be temporarily unavailable from 3:00 p.m. Friday June 29- 8:00 a.m. Monday July 2, 2012.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Please contact the Welch Services Center staff at 955-3410 for further assistance.

If you have questions about this, please direct them to the Welch Services Center staff as CTLT Help staff will be unable to assist you with this.
