A Reading List is an online list of resources for students that can include books, ebooks, book chapters, journal articles, streamed videos, podcasts, websites and links. A list is typically created by an academic who finds resources and adds them to the list.

The library has an extensive and rapidly growing collection of e-books and e-journals that can be used for this purpose.

The Reading List software at Deakin is known as Talis Aspire and is accessed here:

Staff can rearrange the order of resources, set priorities (essential, recommended etc) and customise the list with headings, sections and guidance notes using Talis Aspire.

The licence agreements for these online resources normally allow direct links which can be used immediately in your CloudDeakin unit.
