Online Course Readings

Our Online Course Readings (OCR) service provides digitised book chapters or journal articles for student use. Requests for digitisation should be submitted via the Reading Lists tool in the Minerva, the new Portal and Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The Online Course Readings request form is no longer in use.

We digitise all chapters and articles marked as "core reading", as long as they comply with licensing restrictions.

We can also digitise other chapters and articles upon request. Please select the item(s) from your reading list and then select the OCR icon.

Please help us to carry out your request as quickly as possible by giving as much information as you can.

Make sure that you submit any requests for digitisation by the end of July so that we can digitise your items before the start of teaching.

We will not turn down requests made after the deadline, but we will prioritise those made on time and cannot guarantee when late requests will be available on the Minerva VLE.
