Library:Help for Faculty/Course Reserves
Library Online Course Reserves
UBC Library's course reserves and readings system is online and available by logging into Library Online Course Reserves (LOCR). Access to LOCR is available via Canvas or the LOCR Standalone Site.
Login to LOCR with your CWL and all your courses for the next 6 months should appear automatically. LOCR enables you to manage a number of previously disparate activities including:
- requesting print and electronic reserves
- displaying location information about print reserves
- providing stable links to online readings and other online formats such as streaming audio or video clips.
Complete, step-by-step instructions with screenshots are available at Using Course Reserves.
Note: it can take up to 14 days for items which the Library owns to be placed on short term loan. It may take 2 to 3 months to order and process books that the Library does not currently own.
You can choose a 2-hour, 1-day, or 3-day loan period for your students when entering your print book requests into the online course reserves system. You will find the "Select a Loan Period" drop-down menu at the top of the Item Information form.
- If more than one faculty member requests the same document or book, particularly if there are a limited number of copies, the loan period may be shortened.
