    • The online Course Reserves tool is designed to maintain a conversation between the instructor(s) and the library. When you click "Library Discussion" in your list, the person working on your list is notified that there's a message. You can do this at the list level for general questions, or the citation level to discuss a specific item. This keeps all our conversations in context, so we don't waste time finding the item in question and remembering what was said previously.
    • When you receive a response, you'll see it in your "Notifications" bell icon in the top right corner of your reading list screen. Click the bell to see all your messages and links to the specific part where they appear. You also receive a daily email when you have new notifications.
