Reading Lists

This guide provides information about creating reading lists

Reading Lists at the University of Canberra

The Reading List service enables faculty to streamline access to course materials by leveraging library collections, expertise, and services. Faculty can easily build lists of resources that include all material types, librarians can provide resources more efficiently, and students can access all course materials in one place and from any device.

Please see also the Unit Resources and Copyright guide for information.

Question: Do I need to use Reading Lists?

  • Do you have a Required or Recommended text? 
  • Are you making copies of print resources available electronically to your students?
  • Are you linking to subscribed journal articles?

Then yes, Reading Lists will be an asset for both you and your students. Even if you only have one text or one reading, a Reading List should be created for student reference for now and future use.

Question: Is there video tutorials on how-to use Reading Lists?
