Electronic Reserves - Scores

The Music Library can create PDFs of library-held scores to be made accessible through CTools. To set up online reserves, please take the following steps:

Submit Your Request

  • Submit scores in person to the Music Library or by email to music.reserves@umich.edu. Lists should include composer, title, call number, and pages needed for each item.
  • Create a CTools website for your course at ctools.umich.edu/.

Upload the File to Your CTools Site

The Reserves Coordinator will scan the scores to PDF and email it to you. To put it into CTools:

  1. Download the file to your hard drive.
  2. Login to your CTools site.
  3. Choose the appropriate course site and select Resources from the column on the left.
  4. To organize your resources into folders, click the Add link under "Actions." For the Item Type, select "Empty folder" and then enter a name and optional description for the folder.
  5. From your Resources list, click the Add link next to the folder where you want to put the file.
  6. Set the Item Type to "File Upload."
  7. Click the Browse button next to "Choose a file" and find the PDF that you saved to your computer in step 1.
  8. Enter a title for the item.
  9. Set the Copyright Status to "Material is subject to fair use exception." Do NOT check the box next to "Display to non-members (publicly viewable)."
  10. Click the Add button at the bottom of the page, and that's it!

The turnaround for online reserves is 2-5 days, so please submit requests in advance of when needed.
