Resources for Douglas College faculty as they move to online instruction.

Suggest a Purchase

The focus of the collection is to support the Douglas College curriculum, primarily credit courses. Course related resources for student use are the priority, but the Library also collects materials covering a broad range of educational topics including resources for non-credit courses where the materials are likely to be of ongoing interest. The Library also strives to provide a general knowledge collection. Let us know if there's anything you'd like to suggest we add to our collection. 

Course Reserves

For full information about our Course Reserve options, please check out the Course Reserves page

Faculty may place books, CDs, photocopies of articles and book chapters, electronic reserve articles, and videos/DVDs on short term loan in the library.

  • Up to five copies of a work are accepted.
  • Photocopies or loose-leaf materials should be submitted in Duo-tangs or manila folders. Thicker materials should be submitted in a binder.
  • The folder or binder should include a page with complete references for the readings.
  • Multiple copies of a work should be submitted in separate folders or binders.

Requests are generally processed within five working days, unless the material is not available or copyright clearance needs to be verified. Instructors are encouraged to submit their requests in advance.

You will be provided with a direct link to your course reserves page which you can use in BlackBoard. Your course reserves are also searchable via the Course Reserves search tool. Note: 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.

Upload your Reading List

When submitting your Course Reserves you may chose to upload your reading list and we will:

  • search our collections for available items on your syllabus e.g. journal articles, media, print.
  • scan physical items [e.g. book chapter] from our print collection - in alignment with fair dealing guidelines. Note: the eReserves service cannot digitize physical audio-visual formats, such as DVDs, CDs, VHS etc.
  • when possible, purchase electronic items not in our collection or suggest alternative materials, including open educational resources.
