Course Reserves

The DePaul University Library uses Leganto to manage e-reserves for courses. This tool is managed by the library, and full information for using the system can be found in the library's Course Reserves for Faculty guide.

Adding a Course Reserves link to D2L provides students with easier access to the e-reserves for the course.  This link can also be used by the instructor for quick access to requesting and adding reserve materials.
