Teach Yourself: Using Reserves for Instructors
Course Reserves Self-Service
Faculty can manage nearly every aspect of course reserves online:
The course reserves management system is Web-based, so it can be used anywhere a computer with Internet access is available.
The following short videos demonstrate many of the self-service features of the Reserves system. Although the look of the Libraries' website has changed, the processes of using the Reserves system demonstrated in the videos are the same.

Connecting to Reserves in Moodle -- The best way to integrate your reserves into Moodle is to add the "Library Reserves" block. In editing mode, just look for "Library Reserves" in the drop-down list of blocks. The Library Reserves block is course-sensitive -- it can tell which course you are in and automatically display a link to the course's reserves page.
