Adding readings to Aspire Reading Lists is the sole method by which teaching staff can request books and other learning materials for taught modules. Please add your module reading lists to Aspire by these deadlines to ensure that books and other learning materials can be sourced by AU library staff before teaching begins. AU library staff will then check, buy and digitise items for library stock according to the Reading List Policy.
If you want an e-book for your course, ensure you add it to your Aspire reading list with the importance set to Essential.
Whether the Library can buy one for your module depends on:
Please do not upload a personally digitised chapter or article into your Blackboard module. You can request chapters and articles to be digitised after you have added them to your Aspire reading list.
Library staff will ensure that all scanned chapters from books and articles from journals comply fully with the terms and conditions of the Copyright Licensing Agency Higher Education (CLA HE) licence. Library staff will also ensure compliance by creating professional and high quality scanned extracts and uploading links of the digital copy directly to the Aspire reading list.
Email the Digitisation Service at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require further information or assistance with your digitisation requests.
