The Library is your partner in education, contributing a range of services, resources and programs to strengthen your teaching and your students’ learning.
We create online reading lists that provide students with easy, direct access to your teaching unit material. We ensure compliance with copyright laws, place special access conditions on popular items and arrange purchase and digitisation of materials.
We remove access to digitised book chapters and article at the end of each teaching year, to comply with copyright legislation and license requirements. Academic staff are notified in advance of the date, as links to digitised items will then break.
Contact information is available on the Readings and Reserve Services page.
Contact your librarian and learning skills adviser to develop a program that will meet the information research and learning skills needs of your students and to embed these skills in the curriculum to achieve Monash graduate attributes. Research and learning staff can guide you in the application of the Research Development Framework and support your teaching in this field.
Staff may to refer a student for an individual appointment with a learning skills adviser when a student is in need of intensive support.
Staff and students may borrow material from all Monash University libraries and can pick up items from the campus of their choice. Registering for a CAVAL card at your branch library allows you to borrow from any Victorian university or TAFE. There is also a reciprocal scheme with many interstate universities (enquire at the library concerned).
Staff and postgraduates may request material not available at Monash University Library through our Document Delivery Service.
We encourage you to suggest the purchase of material to add to the Library’s collection for your teaching. Discuss this with your librarian or fill in the suggestion form.
New academic initiatives must include a completed Library Impact Statement. Your contact librarian or learning skills adviser can help you to prepare this document.
The Monash University Copyright Adviser, located within the Library, can provide practical advice on managing copyright compliance within learning and teaching activities.
