Course Reserves

Font size

 A   A+

Once the library has processed your reserve request (refer to the library website for information on requesting materials for course reserves), they will send you a link to your course reserves.

To link to your course reserves from Blackboard Vista you will need to add a web link. The instructions for adding a web link are as follow:

  • Log in to the appropriate course site on Blackboard Vista
  • Along the top of the homepage, click on the “Add Content Link” tab
  • Scroll down and choose “Web Link”
  • Click on the “Create Web Link” tab
  • Enter a title for the link, in this case, probably “Course Reserves”
  • In the “Web Address” field, copy the link sent to you by the library, and paste it here
  • We recommend clicking on “Open in a new browser window”
  • Click save, and return to the homepage to see your link
