Managing Library Reserves
Beginning Spring 2019
Effective until Spring 2020
What is Library Reserves?
Library Reserves now provides instructors an easy way of creating, accessing, and managing course resources. Instructors can build, maintain, and share reading lists that include all material types such as books, articles, and media.
Powered by Leganto, a customizable course readings platform, you can access and edit your redesigned Library Reserves lists at http://bit.ly/csusmlibraryreserves or through Cougar Courses.
Instructor Manual for Managing your Library Reserves
This downloadable PDF manual includes step-by-step instruction on how to use Library Reserves for CSUSM.
You can also access training videos from ExLibris here (please note that not all features in the videos are available in CSUSM's version of this product).
Do I have to use the new Library Reserves tool to manage my reserves?
For Fall 2019, you do not have to use the Library Reserves tool in order to place materials on reserves. You can still use the previous way of placing materials on reserves by completing the appropriate forms:
However, effective Spring 2020, forms will no longer be available for faculty to use. Faculty must use the Library Reserves tool to submit reserve requests or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
