New process for Summer Semester and Semester 1 course reading lists

From Semester 2, 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.

Process for Summer Semester and Semester 1, 2023 teaching periods

The Library is encouraging Course Coordinators to prepare for this change by beginning to use Talis Aspire in the transition teaching periods, including Summer Semester and Semester 1, 2023. During this time, course coordinators wishing to use Talis Aspire should:

  1.    Confirm your required readings in the ECPS
  2.    Publish your course reading list in Talis Aspire.

Confirm your required readings in ECPS

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:

  1. Update relevant required readings
  2. Remove recommended readings
  3. Confirm section 3.1.

Publish your course reading list in Talis Aspire

Update and publish your list at least eight weeks before the start of the semester so they are ready for week one of teaching.

In Talis Aspire:

  1. Update any Required items to Required - own copy needed
  2. Add any new readings
  3. Add any relevant Notes for Students to readings
  4. Add any relevant Notes to Library Staff
  5. Remove unnecessary readings
  6. Publish your list.

The Library will review your list:

  • Purchase any required readings
  • Digitise relevant portions
  • Ensure copyright compliance
  • Flag updated editions.
