Accessing course reserves through D2L
* If you do not have the Course Reserves option, email ctl@depaul.edu to have it added or log into Leganto directly.

Follow the  Course Reserves Guide to learn how to prepare your course reserves. You can create lists of library resources and external resources and make them available to the students in your course with the course reserves system. Course reserves are accessed by students through your D2L course site. Learn how to make them available through D2L.
