Syllabus Service


COVID-19 Update

Due to the library closure, print reserves will not be offered during the 2020-21 academic year. Students, faculty, and instructors can continue to access eReserves through the ReserveReadings tab of their Nexus course. 

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 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.


How to Use the Syllabus Service

You can 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.

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.
