Make course-related articles and book chapters available electronically to your students in BbLearn. The Dalhousie Libraries are offering faculty an option to have links to licensed e-content added to their reading lists and uploaded to BbLearn by one of the Dal Libraries’ 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 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 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 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 Officer and then scan and upload the items into BbLearn. If we’re not able to obtain copyright clearance, the material will be placed on Reserve at the Service Point/Circulation Desk of your selected library and you will be notified of this change.
By offering this service the Dal 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.
