Placing Course Materials Online

Instructors may choose to use one of the course management programs to make readings available to students, use the library electronic reserves service, or some combination of these. For more information about these options, see the general library reserves information page.

To have materials added to electronic reserves please complete the Online Electronic Reserves Request Form.

College Library provides an electronic reserves service which links students to online course materials such as syllabi, book chapters, articles, or audio clips. With complete citation information, we can link to material already available online through the library subscriptions or on the free web. You can also provide us with electronic files or photocopies of documents which we will evaluate for fair use and make available online.

Electronic Reserves will be automatically displayed in your Learn@UW page once we have set them up.

If you do not have a home page for your course but would like one, contact the Division of Information Technology (DoIT).

Materials are processed in the order in which they are received and as quickly as possible. Processing delays may occur at the beginning of the semester.
