Setting Up Your Course

Before you can make any readings available through D2L, you will need to give the library access to your course as follows:

  1. Log into
  2. Click on the Courses and Organizations link in the Self-Service box.
  3. Click on the Request and Manage Shell link.

  4. Click the option to request a D2L Course Shell.
  5. In the Library eReserve section (6), click on the e-Reserve course readings will be used for this Brightspace shell option.


    A second option will appear; click this if you want to copy course readings from a previous version of the course.

By following these steps you will give the Library access to your course, which will allow us to add readings to it.

Already have a Course Shell?

If you have already made your course shell and did not check the Library e-reserve box, you can connect your course yourself by following these  instructions: User Access: Manage shell members – Courses @  Toronto Metropolitan University
