||Instructors for Weekend courses need to provide the library with the following information and materials at least one month before the first class meeting (a calendar will be provided). These materials may be provided electronically or printed.
- Completed Weekend Course Information Sheet*
- Copy of the course syllabus*
- Copies of articles to be scanned and put on-line
- Completed Reserve Placement Request Form
*Required of all courses.
The faculty/staff are advised to view their assignments after they are on-line to make sure everything is correct and report if any changes need to be made by calling x3620 or 3711.
Please note that students begin looking on-line for course information at least two weeks prior to the first class meeting to get assignments and readings. If materials are not in at least a month before, the library cannot guarantee that the materials will be available on-line in a timely fashion and may compromise instructor plans for the first class meeting.
Course information sheets and syllabi may be filled out and returned as an email attachment to Dennis.Goodyear@avila.edu.
Articles or syllabi may be faxed to the library at 501.2456. Articles faxed or on paper should be single sided, of good quality, and with the instructors name and course number written on the top of the first page. For copyrighted materials, the bibliographic citation should also be included.
The library can post PDF files (images of documents) WORD documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations as well as audio and video clips. The Library will password protect materials, especially copyrighted materials, using the instructors last name as password.
