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)
- Digitize eligible books from the Libraries’ collections in full to lend as ebooks through an emerging process called Controlled Digital Lending (CDL).
Submit requests by May 11 for Summer Session I and June 11 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.
Submit requests through the Course Reserves Tool (sign in with BU login) or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
