Teaching & Learning Support

The Library offers a variety of services that support teaching and learning at the University.

Liaison Librarians

Liaison Librarians communicate and collaborate with faculty members in specific academic units. Find yours.

The Faculty Library Representative is the designated individual in each academic department or program who is the point person for communication with the Library and their departmental Liaison Librarian.

Course Reserves

Let us help you with your course readings. Upload your syllabus to the Reserve List Request form or in an email to reserve@brocku.ca. We will scan your materials for uploading to the reserve system. We will review your course readings and ensure:

  • copyright compliance
  • accessibility
  • off-campus access

Book Requests

The library welcomes suggestions for the collection.  You can send your book requests to the Library using our online form, or contact your Liaison Librarian.  All requests (including requests for new journals, databases, etc) will be considered in consultation with our Collection Development Guidelines.

New Courses

Your Librarian can help with acquiring materials for new courses added to the program curriculum.

A completed Library Support for New Course Form is to be included with every new course submission to the Undergraduate Program Committee or Graduate Studies Committee.
