E-Reserves: Add a course page to a guide

In this article

What's a course page?

If your library subscribes to the E-Reserves module for LibGuides, you can easily add an e-reserves course page to your guide. The page will appear just like a regular page in your guide's tabbed or side-navigation menu. But, when a user clicks on it, they'll see the e-reserve course and its items instead of a page with the usual boxes and assets. This can be a great addition if you're creating supplementary guides for specific courses, as it allows students to see all of the available course items without having to leave your guide.

Note: when a course page has been added to a guide, the guide will be listed in the Related Guides section of the course's public page.

Adding a new page

  1. While editing your guide, click on the gray Add New Page () tab.
    • If you have a tabbed navigation guide, this will be the very last tab.
    • If you have a side-navigation guide, this will be the tab at the bottom of the menu.

Clicking the Add New Page tab

  1. Under the Create New Page tab, select "E-Reserves" from the the Page Type dropdown.
  2. From the Course dropdown, select the course you would like to display. Only courses assigned to visible terms can be selected.
  3. In the Page Name field, enter a title for your page. This is what displays in your guide's navigation menu and page heading.
Please note: Only limited HTML tags are allowed in a page's title. These include: <strong>, <b>, <em>, and <i> (as used in Font Awesome icons). For best results, however, we recommend using CSS code to style page titles.
  1. You can give your page an optional Description.
  2. For the Position, select whether you want to add the page as a top-level page, or a sub-level page.
    • A top-level page appears as a tab or side-navigation menu item.
    • A sub-page is nested underneath a top-level page and will appear in a dropdown menu when hovering over that top-level page's tab.
  3. If you would like to hide this page from public view until its ready, select the Draft Mode checkbox.
    • While enabled, you can only view the page while editing the guide. It will not be visible on the public guide, or while previewing the guide.
    • Note: if your system has the Publishing Workflow (CMS-only) enabled, only a designated reviewer can take a hidden page out of draft mode.
  4. Click the Save button.
