Course Reserves

Welcome to the Course Reserve information pages

In order to improve student access to learning materials and to provide faculty with greater control over their course materials, the Library will migrate electronic course reserves completely into HuskyCT.

The new integrated library system, makes it very easy for instructors to find e-resources and to create direct links to them. This transition affords faculty greater flexibility in the design and delivery of class materials, providing the opportunity to make links to electronic resources directly into syllabi, learning modules, and other tools hosted by HuskyCT. This shift to unmediated e-reserves will begin during the upcoming Spring 2016 semester and be complete by the start of the Fall 2016 semester.

As in the past, the Libraries’ Scan on Demand service will provide electronic copies of the library’s print holdings where appropriate.  Faculty need only submit their scanning requests via the interlibrary loan system, ILLIAD.  Staff will locate these materials and provide electronic copies of articles and chapters of books directly to faculty ILLIAD accounts.  Faculty may then post the readings to HuskyCT following fair use guidelines.  We have updated our copyright and fair use resource pages to help provide answers to questions of usage that may arise.  As always, Library Reserve staff are available to answer any questions and to assist with this transition.

Physical copies of books, DVD’s and other hard copy material will continue to be processed by the library where the course is being held.
