Getting Started

Welcome to the help guide for the Library Resources system.

  • At a minimum you must follow the steps below to get started with your course reserve request.
  • Please take note: For Faculty teaching any semester courses, avoid processing delays by submitting your reserve requests AT LEAST 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester. The earlier you submit your resources for your Course Reserve, the quicker your students will have access to your course site documentation.
  • Faculty requesting video streams we don't own, for any semester, should allow at least 60 days lead time.
  1. Request your HuskyCT course site  (pdf instructions)
    Request your HuskyCT Blackboard course in the Student Administration System(SAS) (formerly called PeopleSoft), if you or your department have not already done so.
  2. Once your course site is available:
    • Login to HuskyCT
    • Click on the course you wish to add Library Resources too.
    • Click on Library Resources in the left colunmn menu.
      • Choose the appropriate semester
      • Click Submit.
    • Click on Add Reserve Items in the left column menu 
      • Select the appropriate icon for the type of item you wish to add.
    • To import items from Past Semesters
      • Click on Library Resources in the left column menu
      • Click on the past class you wish to import from.
