Digital Resources Management Centre (DRMC): Submitting a Request

The Digital Resources Management Centre (DRMC) provides a centralised service for the processing and management of copyright materials that are required for teaching purposes by staff members of the University of Adelaide.

Submitting a request

Before submitting a request it may be worthwhile to check if the reading is already available by searching Online Content. You can do this in MyUni by choosing Tools/Online Content and then searching for the reading.

Requests can be submitted in any format as long as the instructions are clear and the required information is included. Email your requests to or to your Research or Branch Librarian.

Required Information when submitting requests

  • Lecturer Name
  • Course code(s) - eg. Acute Care Nursing I : 3310_NURSING_7105
  • Date required
  • Date no longer required
  • Indicate if a Readings: Online Content list is required
  • Citation - In order in which you will be using the readings e.g. weekly, topics or similar

For your convenience, you may send your request by email simply by using this link.

Readings: Online Content lists

A Readings: Online Content list is a single pdf file with links to the DRMC readings that your students require.

This means you only need to upload one file to your MyUni page.

When submitting your DRMC reading list please indicate whether the readings are new or existing.

An example of a Readings: Online Content list may be found below:-

Turnaround times

We would appreciate receiving your requests for readings well in advance of the required date. Time needed for processing will depend on DRMC workload and the ability to obtain the reading/s for digitisation. With no problems obtaining the reading/s, the turnaround time could be a little as five working days from the time of receipt of your request.

Accessing the digitised documents

You will be notified by email when your request has been processed and is ready to be added and activated via Online Content.
Once activated against your course, the items will be available to only those students undertaking that course.
