Connect with UCB Library

A new course reserve management system is available to UBC instructors and students.

This system, launched by UBC Library in collaboration with the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology and UBC IT, is a portal to all course reserves on a secure, campus-wide basis. It is available through Connect, UBC’s new learning management system. Old course reserves request forms will soon be retired in favour of the new system, which provides many benefits.

  • Easy addition of articles, books, web links and media resources
  • View the status of course reserve requests
  • Get a hyperlink for your course materials for use outside of Connect
  • Seamlessly integrate course reserves into your Connect course
  • Group items using tags
  • Reactivate readings in future terms in a single step

  • View usage data

Benefits for students:

  • Targeted and easily accessible readings
  • A single list for electronic, print and multimedia course materials
  • Email notifications when a new item is added
  • Anywhere, anytime access to electronic course reserves
