IVLE is the online gateway to teaching and learning in NUS. IVLE is also the conduit through which you can access several administrative and library functions.
These include the following:
What are E-Reserves?
E-Reserves contain book chapters and/or journal articles in electronic format (PDF or hyperlinks). These readings are recommended by teaching staff and are uploaded in IVLE:
Two types of e-Reserves:
1. Articles that are already subscribed by our online collection (Library Staff will insert the links to the resource for you)
2. Articles, book chapters that are not in our online collection. (Requires submission of copyright declaration (S52) form and copy of the readings, preferably in PDF)
For students’ convenience, past- year NUS exam papers (from the previous 5 years) are available online from the library portal at Exam Papers search tab. Students can access them via the library portal using the module code.
What are RBR or "red spot" books?
Commonly known as "red spot books" or "books on reserve", RBR are books recommended by lecturers for a specific module. These compulsory texts can be borrowed for 2 hours at a time. More details about RBR.
How to place books for a module into the RBR collection:
Alternatively, email a copy of the reading list to our Loans & Membership section.
The number of copies to be placed in the RBR collection will depend on the class size (roughly 1:60 but this can vary). If the material you intend to place is not available in NUS Libraries (check here), we will place an order and subsequently processed the title for RBR.
How to submit E-Reserves?
The NUS Library E-Reserves Team oversees the process of obtaining copyright and digitization of E-Reserves on behalf of teaching staff . E-Reserves are published in IVLE for a specific module.
The library has a good collection of videos, feature films and other multimedia that you can use for education purposes (how to check).
For questions about acquisition, screening , digitization of videos.
Other media related services that we offer include the following::
You can book our Library theatrettes for screening of multimedia programmes related to your teaching modules.
