Library staff have implemented a new online course reserve system to support this fall’s diversity of teaching modalities and need for digital-only reserve materials. The system provides easy access on any device to text and audio visual course resources (including library e-content, web-content and faculty-uploaded material) through Moodle, a direct link in a syllabus, or the library reserve page.
Faculty can place materials on reserve throughout the semester, so we encourage you to take advantage of this new system. Either submit a course reserve request form or be an early adopter and create a list yourself.
To learn more, attend a workshop on Thursday, Aug 20 at 2:00 pm
The system is designed to be user-friendly — let us know what you think.
