Make course-related articles and book chapters available electronically to your students in OWL (BbLearn ) . The Dalhousie Libraries are offering faculty a new service that started in May: an option to have links to licensed e-content added to your reading lists and uploaded to OWL (BbLearn) by one of the Dal Libraries’ Circulation staff, with copyright clearance obtained if necessary.
You can do this online via the Reserve page on our website.
- Go to the Reserves page and select the appropriate library submission form
- Login and fill in the brief course particulars
- Choose “Upload Reading List for New OWL” (you still have the option to fill out our regular form for “In-Library Reserves” if you don’t want your list annotated and added to your OWL (BbLearn) course)
And that’s it! Once you’ve submitted your list, Libraries’ staff will create persistent URLs for electronic items and post the list to OWL (BbLearn) for you.
We work with paper as well! We’ll seek copyright clearance for print material—articles and book chapters—through our Intellectual Property Assistant and then scan and upload the items into OWL (BbLearn). If we’re not able to obtain copyright clearance, the material will be placed on Reserve at the Circulation Desk of your selected library and you will be notified of this change.
By offering this service the Libraries are hoping to build new partnerships with faculty, meet the students where they are, and provide quick and reliable access to library resources. We also hope you find it useful!
Note: Please allow at least 2 weeks for your reading lists to be processed. For further information or to get started, please contact:
