The Library is here to support your online teaching. The information here explains how to share Library resources easily so you can access them from anywhere. Library online resources are designed to prompt a log in which should be familiar to all.
We understand these are exceptional circumstances, if you need any guidance on using Library resources for online teaching please email your Academic Subject Librarian.
Whilst teaching online you may wish to direct your students to:
In the first instance material should be available to students via our online Talis Aspire Reading Lists. You should already have one set up, available to students via a link from Blackboard (if you don't please email your Academic Subject Librarian).
Reading lists include links to print and online materials available from the Library, including digitised book and journal chapters, ebooks and electronic journals. Where an item is available in print only please email your Academic Subject Librarian to discuss ebook or digitisation options to support teaching and assessment.
All "View Online" items on the list have off campus access and this is the best way to direct students to essential or recommended readings.
You can also share a link to an item from the reading list:
While reading lists are the preferred method of access, you may need to share links to other resources whilst supporting students. You can do this in two ways:
Persistent links (sometimes called permalinks) should be used rather than the url in the address bar to remove any browser session details.
In the Library Advanced Search the persistent link shows up in the "Detailed Record" which appears when you click on the resource title. The "Permalink" is located under the "Tools" menu:
The persistent link may be known as a permalink, document URL, persistent URL, durable link/URL, or stable link/URL. Other Library databases and other sites will have a similar option.
If you need any guidance or support in using or linking to these resources please email your Academic Subject Librarian.
