What is Course Resources?

The UC Merced Library's Course Resources service (also called Course Reserves) allows instructors to request supplemental materials for their courses such as book chapters, journal articles, audio, video, books and ebooks. Supplemental materials may be print or electronic and requested through the Course Resources tool in CatCourses. Print materials are held and checked out from the Library Services desk while electronic materials are accessible through the Course Resources tool in CatCourses. Video is made available through Kaltura.
