Course Readings & Media (Reserves)

The Library's Course Readings & Media (Reserves) team is available to support faculty by

  • adding resources to Moodle sites;
  • creating stable links to e-journals, e-books, and resources from MSVU Library databases;
  • adding scanned articles/documents;
  • digitizing and optimizing physical course material for accessibility and functionality;
  • checking fair dealing and copyright compliance, especially for materials not currently licensed by the Library.

For more information visit the Library's Course Readings & Media (Reserves) webpage, drop by the Library, or email

Requests are processed in the order that they are received. The Course Readings & Media (Reserves) team makes every effort to post the majority of course materials by the beginning of term. Due to the high volume of requests we receive in September, we may post materials chronologically, according to the date each reading is used in class. We encourage faculty to provide a full course syllabus or list of dates. This allows us to prioritize your highest-priority readings and materials.

Important Course Readings & Media (Reserves) dates:

  • SSII course readings & media: Please contact us ASAP
  • Fall term readings & media: Please send your reading and media lists by August 15, 2024 to ensure materials are ready for fall.

Library Instruction and Research Readiness

  • Request a Class Visit / Activity Form
    Librarians arrange library orientation or Library Research Workshops as required by faculty. These sessions highlight library resources that students may find useful to complete their research and assignments. Faculty are asked to book their sessions as far in advance as possible to ensure Librarian availability.
