Making material available to students

The eReadings service makes book chapters and journal articles available to your students via Moodle.

The steps for you to follow are:

  1. Collate your list of readings and content required for teaching.
  2. Search the Library databases and QuickSearch for items available already in full text.
  3. Build links to electronic full text content held in the Library databases by using the Library link builder here. Contact us for link building help. Then embed your link into your Moodle course.
  4. Item not available in full text? Submit your list of readings to be sourced and digitised through our online form. Each course must be requested separately.
  5. We will source, digitise, and link the content to your Moodle course for you.

See Making Library resources available to your students in Moodle brochure (PDF).

We continue to support Monash teach-out courses at Gippsland with web-based reading lists for Monash only and Monash/FedUni mixed cohorts.


Requesting digitisations

  • Place separate requests for each course via the submission form.
  • Be early. It can take up to 6 weeks for a reading to be made available ie. if the source item is from overseas, or the book is in use with another patron.
  • Re-request content each semester.

Copyright compliance

  • Our copyright licence covers usage University-wide, not just for one course or unit. You are not permitted to upload journal articles or book chapters yourself as this may breach the University copyright licence. See the Copyright website for more information.

Links on Moodle

  • We place links for items we have digitised for you into your Moodle course in the centre pane, topic 0, hidden. Unhide the link, and move it to your desired location. See the CLIPP guide for more information.
  • Any item available full text through the library databases can be linked using the Library link builder.
