|What is DMU resource list?||
Watch the Introduction to DMU Resource Lists video to find out more about the benefits to students, academics and the library.
|What kind of list is most useful to students?||
|Can I get help with creating DMU Resource Lists?||
Library staff offer a range of support to enable you to create your lists:
|How do I get started using the system?||
|How do I add content to my list?||
|How do I request a chapter of a book or journal article to be digitisated/scanned?||
The library can scan extracts, chapters and articles added to DMU Resource Lists under the terms of our CLA Licence. Once scanned, materials are available directly from the resource list. To request digitisation:
Once submitted, checks will be run to ascertain whether the item can be digitised. If the request is successful, the Library will digitise the material which will be linked to your reading list entry. You will be kept informed of each stage of the process.
|What do I need to do after I have finished my list?||
Your new list will be in draft mode i.e. not visible to students until it has been reviewed by the Library. Library staff will check links, purchase items not in stock etc.
|How can I ensure that materials on my list are available by the start of term?||
Request a review of your list as soon as you can to make sure that your list is reviewed and items available for students in the Library. You will ned to do this at least 8 weeks before the beginning of term. This will allow the Library time to check your list and order items that are not in stock.
|How do I add my list to Blackboard?||
You will receive an email when your list has been reviewed and you can then add it to Blackboard.
Check the Publishing tab (on the right hand side of the page) for step by step instructions on how to attach your list to Blackboard.
|What if I want to update my list after I have added it to Blackboard?||
You can make changes to your lists at any time after it has been reviewed and added to Blackboard. You won't need to re-attach it to Blackboard as the link will stay the same.
|What happens to my lists next academic year?||
In June, 18/19 resource lists will be automatically created. These new lists will be exact copies of your 17/18 lists (minus unpublished changes). This is what we call the rollover.
When the rollover is about to happen, we will send you an email with instructions on what to do next. Instructions will also be available here.
|What should I do if I have a problem with DMU Resource Lists?||
If you have problems of any kind with DMU Resource Lists contact your subject librarian in the first instance. Even if they can't solve the issue, they will ask somebody who can.
The best way to contact your subject librarian is via your faculty email address as the faculty inboxes are checked by a number of different people.
