For Faculty: Curriculum Support

Kresge Library manages course material submission and processing, course reserves, CTools support, and related services.

To contact us about any of the services below, please use our contact form and select the service you would like from the topic options, unless otherwise noted.

Course Materials Submission

Details about submitting materials to be included in coursepacks are emailed to all faculty and support staff 4-6 weeks in advance of the course material submission deadline. The email will include a "THINGS TO DO" document for each term. Materials may be emailed or submitted via MBox+ or dropbox. If any items are not available in electronic format, please deliver a clean hard copy to Kresge Staff, Attn: Debie Gurkin, Fred.Jablonski, Emily Schlaack or Halley Todd.

We have partnered with Study.net and University of Michigan Printing Services. The coursepack format will be an ePack (electronic course site) via Study.net. The Study.net course site will provides students with the option to purchase a TEXTPAK (printed coursepack). Students will receive information about how to purchase the ePack and TEXTPAK approximately 2 weeks before classes begin.

Please email kbalcurric@umich.edu if you will not be able to meet the deadline date or have any questions.

Please include the following with every course material submission:

  • Course Materials Request Form This form provides us with all of the relevant details we need to know to set up the ePack correctly. It also includes a way to notifying us that you WILL NOT require a coursepack which will help us determine our production levels.
  • Table of contents/citation page: Cite all items to be included in the course materials. Please identify materials being used for the first time, and provide specific copyright instructions if known. This page will be included in the course materials packet unless specified otherwise.
  • A clean master copy or electronic files of all items to be included in the coursepack, including the table of contents/citation page. Please submit master copies even if they were used before, or let us know which term and course to reference our files.

Course Reserves Submission

Course Reserves are available at the Shapiro Library (University Reserves collection located within Askwith Media Library). Please see this page for more information

Case Vendors

Most case vendors offer educators access to preview cases and teaching notes. Some require you to register on their website to get educator access. Your librarian liaison or Debie Gurkin can assist you with finding cases, simulations or other curriculum material relevant to your course needs.
