Readings helps lecturers create and maintain reading lists for students and integrates copyright compliance seamlessly.


You can select from a wide range of sources regardless of format and will find that providing readings to your students through the readings.jcu.edu.au platform is a clear, consistent way of communicating to your students what to read, watch, or listen to fully participate in your class.

Readings (Talis Aspire) has replaced the Reserve Online Digital Library (aka Masterfile) repository. The new Reading Lists will consist of curated collections of digital resources that can include links to subscription articles, documents, e-books, book chapters, media and websites.

Readings allows you and your students to make notes on items and indicate reading intentions. The dashboard for staff means you can see how your students are engaging with items you have suggested for them.
