About Course Readings

Do you provide your students with reading lists beyond the textbook in your courses? The library provides services to help make the task easier for both you and your students.

Course Reserves

If you have a mix of physical resources (e.g., books, DVDs, photocopied articles, student-authored works) and digital resources (e.g., full-text articles, web documents, faculty-authored resources), course reserves might be a good option.

Whether they are library-owned materials or your personal copies, we can house physical items in a secure location, provide a single access point on our web site for both physical and digital resources, and manage the lending of physical items to your students.

Course Resources Service

Working from your course reading list and/or syllabus, we can provide you with copyright-compliant, stable, persistent links to digital resources available from the library's licensed databases and journals, or from the open web. We'll even advise you on the use of print materials and media content, too.

We'll do the work, which involves the following:

  • sending an annotated list back to you so you can add the readings and other content to your Blackboard or other course website
  • assessing copyright implications and, if permitted, scanning or digitizing items for you
  • identifying solutions or alternatives that will work for your courses if we do not have access to electronic versions or cannot digitize content

Sometimes we will need to follow up with you. Please be prepared to communicate with library staff and your liaison librarian to ensure your resources are ready for when you need them.
