Information for Instructors
We are excited to announce the launch of our new reading list management tool, myReadings. myReadings embeds seamlessly into your D2L/myCourseLink course site and offers an improved student reading list experience. Please see our information page for further details.
Due to the changing public health situation of the Fall 2021 semester, the library will not be offering physical reserves (short term loans). If you have an item that you previously placed on physical reserve, please let us know and we will seek electronic access.
