  • Faculty encouraged to submit winter term reading lists soon

    Reserve request processing for the winter term is underway at Brock University Library.

    To ensure your students have access to their winter course materials, we encourage you to submit reading lists by November 20, 2020.  

    An instructor self-serve option is also available, providing flexibility to instructors who wish to do this work themselves. All self-submissions will get a final check for copyright compliance, and will then be active for students. 

    An important consideration: print reserve materials remain unavailable for winter 2021 courses.

    Several alternatives to print resources are available including the creation of course-specific online packs. The Reserves team is ready to work with you to develop these for your students. More information about non-print options is available. Liaison Librarians are also available to help you identify alternate resources.

  • Research Data Management Presentation

    In collaboration with the Office of Research Services, Brock University Library begins the Building Better Research series with an online workshop focusing on research data management.

    Professionals and researchers alike increasingly rely on accurate and comprehensive information describing the data they create and use, as well as secure and reliable storage options where data may be safely stored and readily discovered.

    Data management principles enable the best means to document, protect, preserve, and reuse all kinds of data, whether that be before, during or after the completion of a project.

    This workshop will give you the foundation to understand the value of data management expertise in a wide range of contexts, including academia, business, government, and industry.
