Resource list updates
Published On Thu 2 Jul 2020
Resource Lists remain the preferred route for managing the provision of resources to students, and these lists drive the requests and acquisitions workflows for individual titles and resources provided by the LLC. In response to Covid-19 and the move to blended module provision in Semester 1 20/21, all 'Essential Reading' items should be available online, and the LLC Resources teams are working to identify and license online versions, digitisations, and alternative formats.
Academic colleagues are asked to urgently review the 'Essential Reading' sections of Reading Lists by 16th July to remove items not required online, and to note new requests for resources or online resources they have identified:
After this point, the LLC will temporarily freeze lists while making adjustments to start a mediated service to from August onwards. LLC Resources Team staff will review all lists to convert print items to online resource links where possible and discuss alternate options with academic colleagues where online options cannot be sourced. National framework negotiations are underway with etextbook suppliers and where possible chapters will be digitised as cost effective resources.
