How to provide course resources for your students

Academic staff can:

  • create dynamic lists of relevant, up-to-date materials gathered from a range of sources including the Library collection, internet and multimedia resources
  • easily manage and update course resources
  • link course resource lists via a course management system, e.g. Moodle
  • submit Library digitisation requests
  • add mandatory items to lists, either electronic or print (available in the High Use Collection - HUC)

Students can:

  • easily access lists for all of their courses in one place
  • engage with the resources, comment on readings, make recommendations
  • build a personal collection of resources
