Library: Course Resources


Library – Course Resources (Reserves)

The Library has introduced a new and much improved system that makes it easier to build a resource list for your course and provides direct access for students. Access to this system (similar to eReserves) can be made available in Brightspace (D2L) by adding a link in the navigation bar called Course Resources (Reserves) and/or by adding the Course Resources Widget (Reserves) to the homepage of your site.

These options will display your compiled list within Brightspace (D2L), which means your list need only be updated in one place.
 

Course Resources (Reserves) in the Navigation Bar (NavBar)

Course Resources (Reserves) can be added to the NavBar by following these simple steps:

  1. Go to Course Admin;
  2. Select Navigation and Themes (under Site Setup);
  3. In the Active NavBar dropbox, select Course Resources (Reserves) and then Apply.

Make your way back to your course home page. You should see a dropdown arrow next to Content in the NavBar. If all steps were completed correctly, Course Resources (Reserves) will appear in this list.

 

Course Resources (Reserves) as a Widget

Course Resources (Reserves) can be also be added to your course home page as a widget so students can access any course readings and other resources you add through this central location.

To do this you will need to make the ‘Course Resources Home Page’ Active. This can be done by following these steps:

  1. Go to Course Admin;
  2. Select Homepages (under Site Setup);
  3. In the Active Homepage dropdown, choose Course Resources Home Page and then Apply.

Make your way back to the course home page. If all steps were completed correctly, you will see the Course Resources (Reserves) widget on this page.
