Course Resource Development

Reserve items and Course Material Lists

Easily build lists of course materials from the library’s collections and the web to reduce the financial burden of traditional textbooks while expanding access to information using Leganto. If you are interested in using Leganto for your courses, please contact Jayme Sponsel (jasponsel@davidson.edu) for more information.

Requests for physical reserves can be made by emailing Jason Radcliffe (jaradcliffe@davidson.edu).

Media Digitization Requests

Upon request, the E. H. Little Library will stream media that is considered integral to the classroom experience of a course.

Faculty can now initiate a digitization request through the library catalog by locating a DVD in our collection, signing in, and selecting the "Digitization" option. Our How to Find Videos guide provides additional information about the request process.

To provide sufficient time to process a streaming request, we ask that faculty submit requests seven (7) days before it is needed for class use. Please note, if a DVD must be purchased to fulfill the streaming request, this will prolong the processing time. Submissions will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Faculty will receive an email notification with a link to the video when the requested title is available. You can check on the status of your request by visiting the "My Requests" area of your library account. If you have questions regarding the request process, please contact Jason Radcliffe, jaradcliffe@davidson.edu.
