Follow these simple steps to get started.

  • 1. Link Readings Online to your LMS

    The first time you use Readings Online for your subject, you will need to create a link between your LMS subject and the Readings Online database. You may also need to recreate the link when you get a new LMS subject at the beginning of the year or semester.

  • 2. Create a new reading list (incl. rollover)

    The first time you use Readings Online for your subject, you will create a new reading list which will be used for a specified/particular teaching period (eg Semester 1).

    If you are returning to Readings Online, follow the same process to prepare for your next teaching period. This process is now simplified and replaces the previous rollover process.

  • 3. Add your readings

    Follow these simple steps to link to electronic content from the Library’s databases and websites, or to upload a PDF of a hard-copy reading.

    1. Adding journal articles
    2. Adding books
    3. Adding website links
    4. Adding other material
  • 4. Manage your reading list

    Once you have created your reading list, you can organise your readings; tag, group and order readings for your students and hide readings and reading lists that you don't want to make available to students.
