This guide will help you find and link to readings, materials, and content for your bCourse site. The Library recommends linking to public domain, library-licensed, or open-access online content rather than uploading copyrighted materials to your course site when possible. If you wish to upload copyrighted materials, themselves, rather than linking to them, please consult the companion guide Course Instructor Guide to Copyright & bCourses for best practices.
If you can not find a particular resource online in the Library, you can always contact a librarian to see if the item is available elsewhere or if it's available to purchase.
