Submitting Course Reserve Material

COVID-19 Service Update:

Because the Reserve Collection consists of only physical items, Reserve items are NOT available, until further notice. We are not currently lending Reserve items or placing items on Reserve.

Reading Lists: Leganto

Leganto is replacing the Reserve Request forms previously found on this page.

  • See the guide linked at the top of this page for help creating an online reading list.

Items that are placed on a Leganto Reading List for a course will be processed with preferential treatment.

  • Add any type of material to your Leganto Reading List.
    • The library will investigate access options that work best for your course. Where possible, this means purchasing an online resource with unlimited user access.
  • Items only available physically will be placed on Reserve automatically (when Reserves are available again). 
    • Tag them as "Reserve" (as per the guide section on Tag Citations), and we'll move them to the Reserve Collection for the branch where the course is being taught.
      • Select 3-hour or 2-night loan.
      • If you're providing a personal copy (e.g. copy of a textbook), add this tag and bring it to the library.

More information is available for instructors on our guide, Leganto: Create Lists for Course Readings & Resources.


Placing copies of material in Blackboard by-passes the library, and could violate copyright regulations. It is your responsibility to ensure copyright compliance through Trent's Copyright Office.  Using permalinks to licenced library material is generally a better option.

Accessible Formats

Trent University is committed to providing inclusive and barrier free access to information; therefore, accessible formats of materials must be available upon request.
