The library reserve collection is composed of high-use course readings and materials selected by instructors for short-term use by students registered in courses at Queen's University.
Course Reserves enables instructors and students to have one single access point for all reading materials and to support copyright compliance.
Course Reserves for students
Course Reserves is a collaborative web app for creating and managing course readings and resource material. It helps instructors select resources from a variety of sources, involves library staff to manage access and availability, and provides students with direct access to the readings.
Students login to Course Reserves through their OnQ courses. You will find a link to Course Reserves in the "Content" section of your OnQ course.
Course Reserves for faculty & instructors
Faculty and instructors are invited to create course reading lists in the course reserve system to enable one single access point for all reading materials and to support copyright compliance.
Placing materials on reserve
Course Reserves integrates with Omni and OnQ. Please see our Course Reserves guide for more information.
Uploading documents to Perusall, FeedbackFruits or another similar platform?
For many library electronic resources, linking is the best way to make resources available to your students. However, platforms like Perusall and FeedbackFruits only allow you to upload resources and do not allow for linking. They also do not integrate with our Course Reserves platform.
Steps to use Perusall
- To use Perusall and/or Feedback Fruits in your onQ course, first Enable Perusall and/or Feedback Fruits and Course Reserves during the course creation process.
- Add Course Reserves to your OnQ course
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your course number, and a list of items you plan to upload to Perusall or Feedback Fruits. This is crucial as the use of these tools changes the way readings are processed in Course Reserves.
- Add the Perusall link to your onQ course.
- Once items are approved and available in Course Reserves, you can add them to Perusall or Feedback Fruits. Please note, Reserves staff do not have access to your Perusall/Feedback Fruits courses.
