In an effort to centralize and improve access to course materials, University Libraries (Centennial, Parish, Fine Arts & Design, Zimmerman) is partnering with Extended Learning on a project to integrate electronic reserves readings into the UNM Learn system and phase out the use of a separate library-hosted system. The transition will begin over the summer and conclude by the end of the fall 2015 semester.
Support staff in both University Libraries and Extended Learning will be ready to assist faculty during the transition. Staff at all four main campus libraries—Centennial, Centennial, Fine Arts & Design, Parish and Zimmerman—will assist in the process of extracting files from the library’s Docutek system. Extended Learning staff will help with setting up course pages and uploading course reading files to Learn.
“Many students already use Learn to review their professor’s syllabus and to check course assignments and grades, “said Cindy Pieard, director of access services for University Libraries.
Physical reserves will continue to be processed in the traditional manner with materials available for checkout at each library’s service desk.
Additional information and support documentation is forthcoming and will be posted at library.unm.edu. For questions in the meantime, please contact Aaron Blecha, Library Services Coordinator, 277-7120 or Cindy Pierard, Director of Access Services, 277-0280.
