Resources for Academics Guide: eReadings

This guide has been created to assist academics to access electronic material and add these links to Learnline units

eReadings Procedure

If you cannot find a resource using Library Search, our subscription databases, or freely available on the web, the Library can attempt to source the resource for you and add it to the eReadings database. Due to copyright restrictions, only one chapter or up to 10% of a book per edition can be made available per semester.

To do this, you complete a request to add to eReadings

Print resources such as book chapters and journal articles not available in our online collection can be scanned and added to eReadings. Once added you can direct students to find a resource by logging in to eReadings or by embedding the link provided by the library into Learnline modules.

Prescribed texts and Short Term Loan

If you would like prescribed or recommended textbooks to be readily available to students studying on campus, you can request for them to be added to the Short Term Loan Collection. This will restrict loan periods so that more students can access the texts during semester.

Prescribed texts are not automatically added to the Short Term Loan Collection unless borrowing requests are very high, so please consider potential usage prior to semester beginning.

If you are considering using eBooks as prescribed or recommended texts please be aware that the license agreement sometimes only allows for three simultaneous users, or on rare occasions, only one user at a time.
