When should I send my Resource List to the Library?

Course Organisers should review their Resource Lists in preparation for the new academic year and send their updated Resource Lists for Sem 1 2020/21 to the Library by 13 July to give the Library sufficient time to check for availability, purchase e-books and books and provide copyright-compliant digitisations of key chapters/pages. Lists received after this date will still be reviewed by the Library however, there may be a delay in providing access to some items. 

Course Organsiers can also send their lists for review throughout the academic year when new items have been added to a list or new digitisations have been requested.
