If you want to provide free or affordable course readings to your students, there are several options available.
Customize your own course pack using book chapters, journal articles, websites, streaming videos, etc. Follow these general guidelines for sharing resources in SLATE:
You may follow the guidelines mentioned above or let Sheridan Library help you navigate copyright and digitize your course readings in SLATE. Our eCOR (Electronic Course Readings) service is a one-stop service. We can help you on issues such as fair dealing evaluation, permission request, scanning, persistent links, references, locating the material in the library collection, and ordering a resource.
The eCOR tool for content delivery is fully integrated with SLATE. Once course readings are set up, faculty and students can access eCOR through this dropdown menu in SLATE: Library Services -> eCOR Course Readings.
Written by university and college professors, open textbooks and OER can be freely accessed, shared, and adapted under a Creative Commons or open licence.
A course pack is a custom compilation of readings from several textbooks or other sources. Course packs are printed by the Xerox Print Shop at Sheridan and are made available for sale to students at the Campus Bookstore.
Please send an email to Ivelina Nikolov (email@example.com), the Manager of Xerox Print Shop, for more information.
