During the transition from Blackboard to D2L Brightspace, E. H. Butler Library is providing a form to enter any PDF content you might be using in your course shell and we will try to locate the resource in our library's electronic collection. We are also interested in getting you library resources in accessible formats for your personal use. Do you have an article or book chapter PDF you've been using for years? Let us know and we will try to provide you with:
1.) An updated accessible PDF version when available and when copyright is not infringed.
2.) A permalink to the library collection to access the resource. This will assist us in keeping track of usage. Some eBook content may have limited concurrent user restrictions based on licensing. Additionally, Permalinks are reliable and almost never change.
NOTE: Not all content may be available in our electronic collection, but we are hoping to provide a measurable improvement in accessibility!
***For content that we do not subscribe to, we do not suggest you receive the resource via interlibrary loan and place within your course shell for your students' consumption. If you are looking for a personal copy that is accessible, we can attempt to locate the source through our ILL system.
If there are old scans and articles that you are using in your course shell, we can try to find you a more recent version. There are a several reasons for this initiative:
