Electronic Course Readings

Easier access to course readings

From semester 1 2018, the Library is implementing a new electronic course readings system that will improve provision, access and discovery of course readings for everyone.

The new system is being implemented in a phased approach – check the schedule to see if your school has migrated yet.

Not migrated yet? Why not request to jump the queue?

For course coordinators:

Your existing reading lists from the library catalogue will be rolled over to the new system ready for you to access via the Course Readings menu item in your Blackboard course.

Follow these simple steps to get started, or refer to our Course Readings User Guides for additional information.

  1. Access Course Readings from the content menu in your Blackboard course.
  2. Manage your Reading List - organise, group or edit your readings.

If you did not previously have a reading list available via the library catalogue and your school has migrated to the electronic course readings system, you can still access course readings from your Blackboard course menu and follow the steps to set up a new reading list.

Implementation Timeframe

The electronic course readings system will be gradually rolled out to all schools across the University in the coming months.

Let us know if you’d like to jump the queue.
