Placing items on course reserve

Course Syllabus Request

With the College’s shift to online learning, the Library is temporarily transitioning its course reserve service to be exclusively online! Submit your course syllabus to the Library, and we will:

  • search our digital collections to find electronic versions of items [e.g. journal articles, media] on your syllabus
  • scan physical items [e.g. book chapter] from our print collection - in alignment with fair dealing guidelines
  • purchase electronic versions of any items that we don’t currently have in our digital collections, if at all possible
  • suggest electronic alternatives to materials in your course reading list that aren’t currently in our print and digital collections, including open educational resources

Library staff will create links to all the items on your course reading list that are available in our print/digital collections. These will be accessible via your course reserves page, accessible through the Library’s online reserves portal at: Search by Course or Search by Instructor. Add one link to your Blackboard site to provide your students with access to all available materials. Items scanned and added to your course reserves page under fair dealing will require students to login with a password provided to you by the Library.
