Course Resources (Reserves) for Instructors: Getting Started
Changes to reserves at the library
Memorial University Libraries will now be using an online reserve system called Course Resources (Reserves) which is accessible through Memorial Libraries webpage,as well as through your class Brightspace (D2L) shell.
We will still have books on reserve, but now have the following material available to your students online;
- Book chapters
- Video and audio (streaming and from our collection)
- Library Databases
- Links and websites
- Material to support course assignments
What we need from you
To make this as easy as possible - all we need from you is your syllabus or reading list, and we'll take care of the rest!
Our staff will seek out your course resources (required and supplementary) from our collection and beyond, and then organize them into our new system based on the structure of your syllabus (thematically, weekly, etc.).
How long does it take to activate my course readings?
Requests will be processed in the order that they are received. We will do our best to have your resources ready for your students at the beginning of the term but please remember to get your syllabus to us as soon as possible since we will be busy around the beginning of the semester.
How to submit your course syllabus or readings
