Providing easy access to the library's electronic collections
Give students electronic access to course readings and cases
BIC Connects offers the following services:
- Create durable electronic links to assigned readings
- Insert durable links into syllabi and course pages in Quercus
- The links will connect to full-text journal articles available electronically through U of T and provide students access to course material both on and off campus.
To have links added to your courses, please email your request along with your syllabus to BICConnects@rotman.utoronto.ca
Please allow 4 business days for us to complete the request.

• Which print items on your syllabus you’ve already scanned and which still need to be scanned
