Teaching resources

Identify, select and obtain library resources for your course. The library provides access to a broad range of online resources to support your teaching and learning needs that you can use as required and recommended readings for your Reading Lists.

eTexts and eBooks

There are a wide range of eText and eBook access models which impacts on the number of students that can access an eBook at any one time.

  • The library tries to maximise the availability of required readings subject to cost and publisher access model.
  • Recommended readings are to be selected from our extensive range of resources already available. Other recommended readings will be acquired where possible subject to budget and resource availability.
  • Some eBooks are only available for purchase by individuals which restricts the library from buying these for the collection.

Most eTexts and eBooks within our collections will indicate the level of access available. If you need to discuss the level of access contact your librarian.
