Access has been restored to the ALPSP Learned Journals Collection
Queen’s Library is launching a new e-reserve service beginning with the 2013 Fall Term.
The Library’s e-reserve service offers a convenient, one-stop tool that facilitates students’ access to both electronic and print course materials from within their Learning Management System (LMS). As part of this service, the Library will help instructors manage student access to course materials by either linking to or scanning and posting electronic copies in the Library’s collection. Additionally, the Library will ensure that course materials comply with both copyright and accessibility requirements. In 2013 the service will be available for instructors using the Moodle LMS. In future, the Library will expand the service through support for the Desire2Learn and MedTech learning management systems, and for instructors who do not use a learning management system.
Instructors wishing to join a waiting/mailing list to find out more and to get early access to the system can email email@example.com.
For more information about our e-reserve system and services, please see: http://library.queensu.ca/ereserves.
Journals from the ALPSP Learned Journals Collection are temporarily unavailable to all OCUL libraries. The provider is working on the problem and we will post an update once access has been restored.

The Adaptive Technology Centre in the Queen’s Learning Commons has been featured in an article in the Kingston Whig-Standard. The article, entitled “Challenging, Rewarding, Fascinating,” notes that “The Adaptive Technology Centre is a library within a library that gives students with disabilities or special requirements a chance to learn in a way that meets their own needs.” Michele Chittenden, the Coordinator for Library Services for Students with Disabilities, speaks of the rewards of the work she and the ATC staff do in helping students, not only through converting materials into accessible formats, as library technician Carol Tennant does, and determining the best technologies to meet student needs, as adaptive technologist Andrew Ashby does, but by being a supportive and inviting environment for the students who use their services. The article notes that Queen’s Library was at the forefront of establishing services for students with disabilities and the service led to the Library receiving the Canadian Association of College and University Libraries award for innovation in 1994. Recently, Michele was named as a member of the Association of Research Libraries’ Working Group on Accessibility and Universal Design. ARL is an association of 125 research libraries across North America.
