Readings Online User Guide

This LibGuide is designed to instruct users on how to create and maintain a reading list on Readings Online

Adding Journal Articles

The easiest way to make journal articles available on Readings Online is to provide a link to the article from one of the Library’s databases.  A copy of the article should only be uploaded if the article is not available electronically. You can use Google Scholar and the Library Catalogue to locate journal articles.


Copyright and Journal articles

You may use 1 article from a journal issue or 2 or more articles from the same issue if they are on the same topic. (f the article is not available electronically)

Many journal articles are available from library databases via Discovery. You should link to articles rather than printing or downloading them. Use of these library resources is governed by a licence between the University and the database provider, which often do not allow articles to be printed off or downloaded as pdfs to be made available online for teaching purposes. If you do need to print or download articles contact us.
