Embedding library resources through permalinks in Blackboard is the recommended practice for classroom utilization. Faculty members who need assistance with locating/embedding permalinks for digital resources, have questions or concerns regarding this practice, can contact the Director of the University Library.

Online digital content provided by the library varies with multiuser access and printing/saving privileges, due to differing publishers license guidelines. Please close your browser after using the resource, so other Concordia community members may access the material. For accessibility issues, please contact the library.

During the Fall semester, all hard copy Course Reserve materials will be quarantined for 24 hours after use.

For questions about placing a personal item on Course Reserve, contact Dan Zamudio, Access Services Librarian, 708-209-3057.
