Services and Facilities: Linking to Digital Items through Course Reserve

Linking to Digital Items (including certain online articles & ebooks) through Course Reserve

To ensure that all students in your class have access to certain online articles and e-books, direct links to these resources may be made available through the “Course Reserves” module of the library catalogue.

Please note that links may only be made to open access materials† or to articles, e-books or other online resources for which the library has licensed access.*

To request that digital items be made accessible "on reserve," please contact Access Services.

As with print resources, please allow at least 3 working days for processing.


* Licensed library materials include our Electronic Book Collections and the contents of most databases listed on the A-Z List of Databases, as well as certain individual online journal titles accessible from the Library Catalogue.  To find out if the library subscribes to a particular journal, use the Mount Allison Library Journal Finder.

† Open access here refers to scholarly literature that is freely accessible on the public Internet without individual or institutional subscription. For additional information and more complete definitions of open access, please see the Budapest Open Access Initiative, 2001, and the Berlin Declaration of Open Access, 2003.

Links to selected resources for searching and accessing Open Access scholarly materials are available on the Library's Open Access Collections page.
