  • I already use DRMC. Do I need to do anything?

    The work done by the DRMC (Digital Resources Management Centre) will now be done through Course Readings in preparation for Semester 1 2019. All existing DRMC users will be contacted about transitioning their material to the new system.

  • Does this affect Equella?

    Yes. Access to Equella will be closed from early August 2019. Any links from MyUni modules to material in Equella will not work.

    Please use Course Readings to provide access to materials. For help, see our Quick Reference Guides.

  • My course only has a textbook. Does this affect me?

    Yes. If you already make textbooks available through the library, we will be in contact to transition your material to the new Course Readings system.

  • I've heard of Leganto - what is this and how does it fit in with Course Readings?

    Leganto is the name of the software that underpins the new Course Readings tool.

  • What are the guidelines for Course Readings?

    The Library provides the Course Readings service

    What the Library will do

    • Provide the Course Readings tool to allow you to create a reading list based on the resources you have selected.
    • Provide online access to resources wherever possible, including books, chapters, journal articles and audio/video content.
    • Ensure online access is available at the time of teaching or ahead of time wherever possible.
    • Enable access to materials added to readings lists after the start of the teaching period.
    • Manage copyright and licensing agreement requirements.
    • Provide access to all required readings via links in MyUni or for print textbooks, the Library’s High Use Collection. Required readings are those that students must read as part of the course.
    • Ensure recommended readings are available in the Library’s online or print collections. Recommended readings are those that students may read.
    • If not part of the Library’s collections, consider purchase of further readings. Further readings are provided to encourage students to explore.
    • Work with MyUni to ensure all support materials are easy to understand and up to date.

    What we need from you

    • Use the Course Readings system to create your reading list prioritised according to required, recommended and further readings.

    How will students access and manage their learning resources?

    • Students will have access to their required readings via links in MyUni, or for textbooks, through the Library’s High Use Collection.
    • Students will have access to their online recommended and further readings via MyUni provided they are added to the reading list.
    • Students will have access to print recommended readings through the Library’s physical collections.
    • Students may have access to print further readings through the Library’s physical collections.

    Textbooks

    • The expectation is that students will buy textbooks required for their course.
    • We have an e-preferred policy and will provide electronic versions of textbooks (where licencing permits), in preference to print.
    • The Library will provide a limited number of required and recommended textbooks
      • for required resources we license up to 3 electronic copies or purchase 1 print copy per 100 students (rounded up).
      • for recommended resources we license/purchase 1 copy.
