Ares is an enterprise level application for managing and presenting both print and electronic course reserves on one platform. Ares is used by library staff in Resource Sharing and Reserves and Access Services to process course reserve material. Students connect to the course related materials through several Course Management Systems in use at Yale, including Classes and Canvas.
