Reading Lists: information for semester two 2021

By Curtin Library 13 July 2021 News & events Comments Off on Reading Lists: information for semester two 2021

With the commencement of semester two, teaching staff are reminded to arrange access to unit readings through the Library’s Reading List system.

The Course Quality Manual states that all units will have a Reading List unless exempted. In particular, all learning resources copied under the University’s Statutory Licence must be recorded in the Reading List system by being included on relevant 2021 Reading Lists.

Your next steps

Teaching staff who wish to roll over existing Reading Lists should do so now.

Staff should also check that their lists are Associated with the correct Blackboard units and that the lists are Published prior to the commencement of the study period.

Staff should use Reading Lists to notify the Library of their unit’s prescribed essential learning resources.

New features

The Add items area has been given a fresh, clean look but provides the same ability to search and add items from the Library catalogue as well as create manual citations and upload files.

The Reports tab was removed for maintenance by the vendor. However, the View List Analysis report is still available from the main Reading List page.

Other updates

Print books

A reminder that the Library is digital by default. Print books will only be ordered if the resource is not available electronically.
