Reading List: Request resource

Creating unit reading lists

Adding a book chapter and digitisation request

If you would like to complete a digitisation request for a book chapter, first add all the resource details to the Reading List. Then follow the steps below. 

1) Select the item in the Reading List and select the edit icon on the right. 

2) To request the digitisation of a book chapter, change the Type to Book Chapter.

Then add as many details as possible about the item (chapter title, chapter author, edition, start page, end page).

Adding these details will support the digitisation process and ensures the library digitises the correct item.  

To complete the digitsation request follow the steps below. Only start this process if you have added all the necessary information to the item as shown above. 

3) Select the item you want to digitise and then select the Digitisation request link.

4) Fill in the dates the resource will be available, the chapter number and the page range. Then select submit. A confirmation popup will appear if the request was sent successfully. 

Add a note if there are special requirements, such as your page range only covering half the chapter, as that is all that is required. 

5) The library will communicate any issues with your request using Reading List communications, which will also trigger an email notification (make sure you check your junk mail folder, as the email notification might initially go into that folder.

You can find Reading List communications in your alerts or in the Library Discussion tab after you select the item.

2) Once the resource has been added to your reding list, select Add tags to item.
3) Select the Purchase Me tag and select Save.
4) The library will communicate any issues with your request using Reading List communications, which will also trigger an email notification.


You can find these messages in your alerts or in the Library Discussion tab after you select the item.
