The role of the Library 

  • Process any readings that require mediation (e.g. acquisition of new materials*) 
  • Upload scanned book chapters
  • Ensure Copyright compliance for all resources 
  • Roll over reading lists at the end of each exam period, in time to prepare for the next study period
  • Provide support through this guide, FAQs, workshops and appointments 

* Please note - for items not available in the collection, it is recommended reading lists are submitted 4-6 weeks before the course commences to ensure resources are available to students. For print resources, domestic and international delivery times may vary affecting supply.
