Two Library projects to help your students make the most of our resources

Do you have a reading list that is dived by weeks or topics?

We have a new way to embed articles, chapters, e-books and more into your Moodle page.  This means that the resources you want students to read each week can have permanent links embedded within your weekly Moodle posts that will automatically update during the annual reading list roll over.  This makes it even easier for students to access the resources you want them to read for seminars and means you can check how much reading list items are used as well.

Do you post individual articles/chapters into Moodle outside of a formal reading list?

Did you know that you are legally required to check each scanned item annually, report the usage to the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA), and display them with an up to date cover sheet?  We can help you install a new widget that can make a scanned document appear directly on your Moodle page, carry out all the copyright checking and reporting, and present your students with a high quality scan provided by the Library.  The widget is designed to save your time and help you comply more easily with the relevant legislation.  We appreciate that in some cases there are good reasons to include resources separately but wherever possible, we strongly encourage the use of this helpful new tool.

Both these developments will help inform Library procurement and ensure we can provide resources for students with visual or print-related impairments.  Please contact your Faculty Librarians, Linda Jones or Annushka Donin in the Library to begin your trial.
