Teaching this summer? Let Course Reserves help!

The Libraries’ Course Reserves department can help make summer course materials easily accessible to students and manage your required course readings in one, convenient location. Course Reserves staff can do the following:

  • Place physical textbooks on Reserves at Bartle or UDC libraries for short-term use
  • Upload stable links to ebooks, streaming videos, and articles owned by the Libraries
  • Scan textbook chapters to ensure accessibility (subject to copyright restrictions)

Submit requests by May 17 for Summer Session I and May 24 for Summer Session II. The deadlines help ensure your course materials are available by the first day of classes. You may submit requests after these dates; they will be processed in the order they are received. 

We recommend instructors who opt to use Brightspace this summer bookmark the link to the Course Reserves Tool in your course or syllabus. A Reserves add-on for Brightspace will be in place for Fall 2021. Students will still have full access to Summer Reserves through the Course Reserves Tool. 

Submit requests through the Course Reserves Tool (sign in with PODS login) or email mainresv@binghamton.edu with questions.
