If you have used LOCR in the past, please remember that you need to re-activate your reading list each time you teach a course by using the import function to copy over your reading list to your new course iteration. ** Note: previously digitized articles permissions expire at the end date of the course. They will need to be re-approved by the Permissions Office for the new course dates.
