Digitised readings now available for students

Resources for Courses

The University has launched a new digitisation service to enable students to access book chapters and journal articles.

The new service, which is part of the Reading Lists @ Liverpool initiative, allows staff to access material quickly and make it available to students. Digitised resources are embedded within the relevant reading list modules so students can view, print and download material.

University Librarian Phil Sykes said “Providing enough core readings for students is a perennial problem for every academic library. This innovative new service is a great step forward for us in providing excellent resources for both students and teaching staff at the University”.

General copyright guidance for academics, researchers and students can be found here: http://libguides.liv.ac.uk/copyright.

For any further questions or queries on the digitisation service please contact your Liaison Librarian.

    Is this article suggesting that our (us students) core texts are now all available online?

      Hi John, It’s a service which allows us to digitise individual book chapters at the request of teaching staff. The idea is to provide easier access to high demand texts. We do provide copies of whole textbooks digitally where we can, but unfortunately it’s not possible to offer every textbook digitally due to the scale of such an operation. I hope that helps.

    It sounds to me that it is only available if your lecturer makes it so, via the reading lists page. However I have known some lecturers ego are very technology shy and do not use this feature or vital properly at all so I suppose it depends on your lecturer
