Course Builder Access on Blackboard

Library staff cannot link items to your Blackboard course until we are granted access to your course. In order to give library staff "course builder" access:

  •     Go into the Blackboard course for which you would like to grant access.
  •     Under the Control Panel, click on Course Tools.
  •     Click on More Tools, and then select Request E-Reserves.
  •     You should see an Instructions page.
  •     Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click on the Gelman Library System radio button.
  •     Click the Submit button.

This will give library staff the ability to link electronic reserves.
