Subject Readings

What are Subject Readings?

Subject Readings provide essential course materials for your students. You submit a list of your necessary readings to the Library and we make the content available for your students to access online or in the Library.

All Subject Readings follow Australian copyright law.

COVID-19 impact on Subject Readings
Due to the extremely low usage of print set texts since the online delivery of the curriculum, and the restrictions around access to the Library and quarantining of books, set texts will not be available as 2-day loans for the remainder of 2020. They can be borrowed for the normal loan period, subject to recall.

Subject Readings can consist of things like:

  • ebooks
  • book chapters
  • journal articles
  • websites
  • online streaming media
  • exam papers

Submit your reading list

Submit or update your Subject Readings using our online submissions form.

COVID-19 impact on Subject Readings 
The Library is anticipating a possible increase in demand due to online teaching.
Please provide your readings in a week by week format. If this is not possible, please indicate priority readings for start of session.

Make sure your submission includes:

  • full bibliographic citation details, OR provide your subject outline as an attachment
  • any special instructions, including readings you need removed from your list.

For course textbooks, include:

  • edition (if applicable)

The Library will aim to make Subject Readings available for the start of session if:

  • your request was received no later than three weeks before the start of the session
  • items are available in the collection.
