What is LOCR?

Library Online Course Reserves allows you to create and curate a single list online of the resources required and supplementary for your course. You can easily add articles, books, web links and media resources. As the university transitions from Blackboard to Canvas, LOCR will be independent of the LMS and accessible at https://courses.library.ubc.ca.

Where can I find LOCR and my course reserves?

You can access LOCR right here through the Library Tab in Connect/Blackboard or at https://courses.library.ubc.ca.

When my courses transition to Canvas, will I have to set everything up again?

Luckily, no. Here's why: LOCR has an independent database from the LMS. When you switch your course from Connect to Canvas, all of the course and reading data in LOCR will remain the same. There's no duplication of effort required!

We welcome your feedback - if you have any questions or comments, please contact your course reserves branch: http://services.library.ubc.ca/borrowing-services/using-course-reserves/#Contacts-3 .
