Embedded Course Reserves: Piecing the Puzzle Together
Clumpner, Krista E.; Burgmeier, Michael; Gillespie, Thomas J.
Computers in Libraries, v31 n4 p10-14 May 2011
Northern Michigan University (NMU) is a public 4-year undergraduate institution of higher education with an enrollment of approximately 9,500 students. The university's Division of Academic Information Services encompasses both the staff of the library, which includes authors Clumpner and Burgmeier, and the instructional technology areas, where author Gillespie works. The authors support the instructional activities of faculty both on campus and off campus, in face-to-face courses and with online instruction. In the 2010 fall semester, they worked together to integrate course reserves into the course management system so that students could seamlessly access materials on reserve for a particular course. It took the cooperation of the library systems staff, the web services librarian, and the instructional technologist to piece together the necessary systems and services into a puzzle with a complete picture of embedded course reserves as the end result. In the end, students, faculty, and staff have all benefited from the integration of their electronic reserves software with the course management system. (Contains 4 figures.)
