Reserve / High Use collection

The Reserve collection contains books that are in very high demand, that is, essential and required reading only.

For details of what can be included in Reserve, see the Reserve policy page.

Academic staff should send Reserve collection requests to the Reserve staff by or by highlighting items on a reading list.


Requests should include:

  • course name, course number, number of students
  • the requester's surname and initials
  • full bibliographical details of the item
  • the date the item is needed/no longer needed for Reserve


Course readings

The Digital Resources Management Centre [DRMC] digitises and makes available teaching material - journal articles, book chapters and other text materials - online on behalf of University staff. It is a centralised service for the processing and copyright management of material required for teaching purposes.


  • Sources and scans copyright material to create a digital item and assigns accompanying metadata
  • Makes readings available for lecturers to add to MyUni via the Online Content tool
  • Checks readings for copyright compliance and maintains the copyright records required for reporting
  • All copyright material that is to be made available for teaching purposes on MyUni must be requested through the Digital Resources Management Centre

Requests can be submitted in any format as long as the instructions are clear and the required information is included. Email your reading list to DRMC.

For further information, see the DRMC guide. You are also welcome to contact your Research Librarian.

Copyright for teaching and learning is a university-wide practice.
