You need a Library Impact Statement. Please include your Subject Librarians as collaborators in the Curriculum Management System (CMS) and ensure we know the following:
We can work with you to identify any additional resources needed to support the new programme or course.
Use Short Loan to manage limited print resources (e.g. textbooks, lecture notes, high-demand material). Items placed on Short Loan can usually be used in the Library only, are issued for short periods of time, and can be booked ahead of time by students.
Where a suitable licence exists, we will buy an ebook version and manage access according to use. Textbooks may be unavailable for Library purchase due to licence restrictions so contact us to discuss the options.
Note: Short Loan is not a suitable option for a class composed of Distance students.
In Stream and other online environments you can link your students directly to key online journal articles, ebook chapters and other Library resources.
Ask for Stream material that contains links to Library help, How Do I Find instructions and demonstrations for journal articles and other resources.
We have developed over 30 short online demonstrations to show your students how to get the best use from Library resources. These can be linked to from your Stream course.
Remember that copyright provisions apply to use of Library resources in teaching.
