Syllabus Service

Important Notices

The submission deadline for course reserves has passed. Requests received after August 15, 2021 will be processed as quickly as possible in the order they are received, but we cannot guarantee they will be available by the start of Fall Semester on September 7.

Due to the high volume of submissions received at this time of year, please allow for an increased turnaround time of 2-3 weeks.


About the Syllabus Service

The Syllabus Service is a quick and easy way to put your assigned readings on course reserve. Simply send in your reading list and library staff will ensure materials meet fair dealing and accessibility guidelines before locating and uploading items to the ReserveReadings tab of your Nexus page.

Course reserves are processed on a first-come, first-served basis and have a typical turnaround time of 3-5 business days. Items that require copyright permissions or that are not currently available in the library may require more time to process. During the lead up to a new semester, high submission volumes increase turnaround time to an average of 2-3 weeks. For this reason, early submissions are highly encouraged.


How to Use the Syllabus Service

Submit to the UWinnipeg Library’s Syllabus Service by emailing your reading list and full course code (e.g. ANTH-1001-001-U2020FW) to Please provide full bibliographic citations, as this helps us quickly locate the correct item. If an item will be on print reserve, specify a loan period of 2 hours, 4 hours, or 1 day.

Once you have submitted your reading list, all you need to do is click on the ReserveReadings tab in your Nexus course to activate it for students. For information on activation and course reserves in general, please see Course Reserves for Faculty & Instructors.

Important: If you are using a combined Nexus course (one course page for multiple sections or for cross-listed courses), you must include the combined course code found in the “Course Details” box on the home page of your ReserveReadings tab. Without this code, staff will not be able to process your materials into the correct location.
