Reading Lists service

Reading Lists is Curtin’s course resource management system supporting the University’s learning, teaching and copyright compliance requirements.

Information for students

Reading Lists are lists of essential and recommended resources selected by your lecturers to help you succeed in your units.

To access Reading Lists, log into OASIS, click the Blackboard button and open your unit. In the navigation pane, click on the “Reading List” link to access your list.

Your list may include resources like eBooks, journal articles, conference papers, websites, audio and video files, and other web-based resources.

You can also check our Textbooks in the Library page to search your units’ textbooks and see where these are available to borrow or buy.

Information for instructors

The University’s Copyright procedures and Course Quality Assurance Manual – Consolidated Policies and Procedures requires that a Library Reading List is available for all unit availabilities (unless exempt).

All prescribed textbooks, essential readings, and University’s Statutory Licence learning resources must be recorded on the relevant Reading Lists.

You can use the Reading List service to:

  • facilitate access to learning resources by having the Library purchase the prescribed textbooks, and communicate this to your students in advance of unit outline publication. The information will populate on the Textbooks in the Library webpage, providing students with a link to borrow the textbook from the Library.
  • manage your copyright obligations by ensuring your readings are compliant with the Statutory Licence agreements and Library database agreements.
  • make relevant resources more discoverable through the dynamic interface anywhere, anytime.
