Support for Teaching: Readings for your Module

Readings for your Module

The Library aims as far as possible to provide scanned extracts of print articles and book chapters for individual modules. Where licence restrictions do not permit scanning, photocopied offprints can also be requested. These are held in Library short loan collections.

If students on a module are referred to more than a single chapter of book, multiple copies of the book usually need to be ordered.

If you are able to supply reading lists well before the start of teaching, subject librarians can help you determine which readings can be scanned and which might already be available online. The availability of books for teaching can also be confirmed and appropriate numbers of copies ordered.

Full details of how to create links can be found in these very brief documents.
