eReadings & RapidPrint
Copyright material made available online or distributed in digital form must be registered.
The material to be made available online is placed in a database that is accessed through the eReadings interface (for online viewing and saving) and RapidPrint (for on-demand printing). PDFs of journal articles available in SCU databases and ebrary readings will not be placed in eReadings due to database licence restrictions, but permanent links to the items will be created allowing direct access to the reading.
All material goes through a copyright check ensuring the limitations regarding amounts are met. In addition, the system manages the requirement that only one portion of a particular book can be online at the one time. In such cases, the material will be available for printing through RapidPrint, but will not be available to view online.
It is a very simple two step-process:
- Complete a short registration form - follow the 'Register items for eReadings' on the eReadings site
- Provide a copy of the material to the Printery for scanning (indicate scan for eReadings in the special instructions box).
If you have submitted your readings through Flexible Learning Development Services (FLDS), this is not necessary, as FLDS will submit your materials to eReadings if you tick the eReadings box in your submission.
For more information on including material in eReadings and RapidPrint, have a look at the guides on the eReadings site.
