NOTE: The Libraries will not be able to provide access to physical copies of books or other physical materials on Reserve during the fall 2020 semester. Faculty can request to have chapters of books scanned and placed on Reserve.
Pickering Educational Resources Library strives to make all course reserve readings available through our Course Materials system. Items can include eBooks, books, articles, book chapters, websites, videos, and any other required media. Professors contact the library to set up course reserves every semester -- if your course has no list set up, ask your professor!
You can find here links to all active course reserves lists for the current semester. Digital materials are directly accessible through the links to the right.
Faculty can set up course reserve lists easily through the BU Libraries Course Materials system. If you will use Blackboard, we recommend you start reading lists in there: to do so, see Tool Links > Course Materials. This way the list you create will be automatically tied to your course. If you do not have a live Blackboard site, you can start lists in Course Materials directly. See our guide for more details.
After you add items in Course Materials, just click "Send List". Library staff will then process the list and make everything available digitally for your students, to the extent copyright allows. If you need help along the way, please contact the library by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
