eCOR: Electronic Course Readings: Home

What is eCOR?

Electronic books eCOR is a one-stop electronic course reading service accessible via SLATE provided by Sheridan Library and Learning Services in collaboration with Centre for Teaching & Learning and Information Technology.

Faculty can customize the readings from different sources (e.g. book chapters, journal articles, websites) they want for their courses and get help from the Library with setting up digital readings and ensuring copyright compliance. Once digital readings are set up, students can access them via SLATE.

Go to the For Faculty and For Students sections to see how eCOR works!
