The Library works with academic staff to provide students with access to learning resources for their courses. Course reading lists are created in the Library's reading lists system, Talis Aspire. Reading lists can include items such as books, journal articles, eBooks, streaming video, podcasts and other types of materials. You can update, edit and publish reading lists for your courses.
Reading lists in Talis are simple to update. Once published, students are able to access them in Learn.UQ (Blackboard) in the Learning Resources section of their course and via Library Search.
During 2023, UQ is replacing the Electronic Course Profile System (ECPS) with a new system. This change means that learning resources and course reading list information will need to be added to a system called Talis Aspire by Course Coordinators.
The Library is encouraging course coordinators to prepare for this change by beginning to use Talis Aspire in the transition teaching periods. During this time, course coordinators wishing to use Talis Aspire should:
Confirm your learning resources in the ECPS (Electronic Course Profile System) at least eight weeks before the start of the semester so they are ready for week one of teaching.
To do this:
Update and publish your list at least eight weeks before the start of the semester so they are ready for week one of teaching.
