Request subject resources

To meet copyright and licensing obligations, book chapters and journal articles must be managed by the Library rather than uploaded directly to iLearn. The Library provides a Resource List service that plugs in directly to your subject sites in iLearn.

Check out these online guides to using the system.

Your Faculty Librarian can help you get started.

Resource Lists are a consistent way that students can access and engage with the resources you recommend to them, including textbooks, videos, reports, articles and website links.

The Reserve Collections contain hard copies of materials that are in high-demand to support teaching programs. Items are available to students on short loans of 3 hours. Usually, one copy of textbooks or DVDs is placed in the Reserve Collection with additional copies on 7-day loan.

  • Tag the citation in your resource list with "Add to Course Reserve" or email your requirements to [email protected] or your Faculty Librarian

You can check in Library Search or your Resource List to confirm availability of items in the Reserve Collection.

In your resource list, you can easily see if the Library already has access to full-text articles or ebooks. For citations where we don't have licensed content, the Library can digitise only one chapter or article, or  make 10% of a work available at any one time on behalf of the whole University. In cases where permission has been obtained from the copyright holder, these can also be managed by the Library. In your resource list:

  • Add the citation details
  • Upload a pdf if you already have a copy
  • Tag the citation with "Scan to eReserve"
  • Links to digitised content will be available to students within the resource list

The Resource List Guide for educators includes full details and videos on how to use the service.

If you are not yet using the Resource List service, or have other special requirements contact your Faculty Librarian, who can also assist with identifying alternative resources in cases where copyright prevents digitisation.

If you have any resource requests such as requiring a resource in a different format for students with a disability, please contact the Library Disability Liaison Librarian:

Any eligible items added to resource lists for teaching, that the Library does not already hold will be considered a purchase request. Just remember to request "Library Review". There is no need to email your Faculty Librarian.

You are welcome to suggest other resources for the Library collection that are not specifically for a subject.

Online and streaming video content can be added to your resource lists. This includes licensed Library content as well as video sourced from online sites such as Vimeo and Youtube.

If you have audiovisual content that you have made yourself and would like to make it available either as an Open Educational Resource (OER) or for Bond use only, please discuss with your Faculty Librarian. We may be able to add it to these digital collections. These can also be added to your resource lists.

Staff and students enrolled at Bond University are able to bring DVDs/videos and other material from home to use for research or study. This includes recordings from television or radio that have been made at home. Copyright procedures outlined in the copyright guide must be followed.
