Services for teaching

The key Library goals in supporting teaching are:

  • to build sustainable resources and digital infrastructure to support expanding modes of teaching, learning, research and scholarly communication
  • to expand and strengthen the Library‚Äôs educational impact through collaborative partnerships.

Read the Library Plan

Faculty Librarians

Faculty Librarians are key team members for achieving these goals. They facilitate communication between the Library and each Faculty to match services and resources to academic requirements. Your Faculty Librarian can also provide support and training on information skills; assistance locating resources for teaching; advice on embedding resources and information skills into iLearn subject sites.

Subject resources

Resource Lists

To meet copyright and licensing obligations, book chapters and journal articles must be managed by the Library rather than uploaded directly to iLearn. The Library provides a Resource List service that plugs in directly to your subject sites in iLearn.

Resource Lists are a consistent way for students to access and engage with the resources you recommend to them, including textbooks, videos, reports, articles and website links. 

Online and streaming video content can be added to your resource lists including licensed Library content as well as video sourced from online sites such as Vimeo and Youtube.

Check out these online guides to using the system.

More subject resource services

  • Physical Reserve

    The Reserve Collections in the Main and Law libraries contain hard copies of materials that are in high-demand to support teaching programs. Items are available to students on short loans of 3 hours. Usually, one copy of textbooks or DVDs is placed in the Reserve Collection with additional copies on 7-day loan.

    • Tag the citation¬†in your resource list with "Add to Course Reserve". If you are not using a resource list¬†contact your Faculty Librarian.

    You can check in Library Search or your Resource List to confirm the availability of items in the Reserve Collection.

    E-Reserve

    In your resource list, you can easily see if the Library already has access to full-text articles or ebooks. For citations where we don't have licensed content, the Library can digitise one chapter or article, or make 10% of a work available at any one time on behalf of the whole University. In cases where permission has been obtained from the copyright holder, these can also be managed by the Library. In your resource list:

    • Add the citation details
    • Upload a pdf if you already have a copy
    • Tag the citation¬†with "Scan to eReserve"
    • Links to digitised¬†content will be available to students within the resource list

    The Resource List Guide for educators includes full details and videos on how to use the service.

    If you are not yet using the Resource List service, or have other special requirements contact your Faculty Librarian, who can also assist with identifying alternative resources in cases where copyright prevents digitisation.

  • If you have any requests for a resource required in an accessible¬†format, please contact us.

  • Faculty Librarians develop guides on request to provide support for your subjects. They work in collaboration with academic staff to ensure the guides cover the needs of students. Ideas for guides to support teachers as well as students are welcome.
