How to submit course reserves

Before submitting any course reserve material, you must set up a course site in myCourseLink; see instructions below:

  1. Log into MyInfo
  2. Click the "Faculty" tab
  3. Click "Class Roster (Current)"
  4. Select the applicable course and click "Continue"
  5. Click "Request an Online Course Site"
  6. Fill in the form and submit

Once a course site has been set up, fill out this form.

For help with myCourseLink, contact the Teaching Commons (807-346-7730) or Processing a request for a course site takes approximately 1-2 business days.

Processing time for course reserves

  • If you select the Course Reserve option as your Request Type, please allow up to 7 business days for processing. Processing time may take longer (2-8 weeks) if copyright clearance is required. Please note: In the event of classes being migrated online, the library will work to expedite the course reserve processing time as possible.

Please note, the Library asks for limited permissions to upload course reserve listings and electronic materials directly into your course site. The Teaching Commons will work with the Library to provide only the necessary amount of access. Contact the Library directly if you would like to request alternate arrangements for adding course reserve content into your course site.

Information for Students

Check myCourseLink

Once logged in, you should have access to course reserves from courses you are currently taking.

There are two types of listings:

Online: Links to materials available online (e. g. article or chapter from an ebook)

Paper, etc.: Material that the Library is only able to make available in its physical format (e.g. a print textbook). You must come into the Library to borrow this material.  For these items, note the call number provided in the myCourseLink listing; bring this information to a Services Desk at the Library to check out the item.
