News Items from UNC Greensboro

Faculty members, it’s time again to set up your print and electronic course reserves at the University Libraries. To be available by the first days of class, new lists are due as follows:

Winter – Friday, December 6
Spring – Friday, December 13

Requests to renew fall lists for use in winter and/or spring are due by Wednesday, December 4.

eReserve readings are stored in Box@UNCG and delivered to students via Canvas. The Reserve staff creates eReserve folders in Box and then sends an email to instructors containing embed codes to use to insert them into Canvas; instructions are provided and available at https://library.uncg.edu/info/depts/access_services/reserves/AddingeReservestoYourCourseinCanvas.pdf. The embed codes allow students to see the eReserves in a Box widget embedded into a page on Canvas.

Allowable amounts differ; please contact us regarding questions.

Before placing a film on reserve, please check the Libraries’ numerous streaming film sources (http://uncg.libguides.com/streamingfilms). Also, we offer hundreds of thousands of e-books that may be linked to from your course syllabus. To learn more about these please see our e-book guide (http://uncg.libguides.com/ebooks).
