Course Readings User Guides and videos


The Library uses a Electronic Course Readings system, specialist software simplifying the creation and maintenance of reading lists and ensuring that the University meets its compliance obligations around Copyright. More on Copyright

Students experience a simple user interface with readings embedded in one place as the system integrates with UONline (Blackboard ). This system makes overall processing easier and more efficient.

Staff can discover, add, organise and annotate readings quickly and link to Library resources, scanned resources, as well as adding online resources keeping a list together in one place.

All lists can be saved, updated and rolled over to be reused for future academic teaching periods.
