Providing support materials and resources in your teaching promotes the acquisition of knowledge and makes learning interesting.
The Library can help you identify, source and provide access to appropriate and relevant resources that support key teaching activities of reading, watching, listening, investigating, analysis and production – different activities that help your students achieve learning outcomes.
The Library supports these activities via the Flinders reading list (Leganto), which is embedded in every FLO topic. Online articles, textbooks, databases, streamed videos and podcasts, and websites can all be added to a list with the click of a button.
Using the readings list, teaching staff can curate their student learning experience quickly, and students can navigate and access the resources according to their learning needs at the time that they need them.
Explore below the resources and services offered by the Library to facilitate access to the best resources for your teaching.
Finding the best resources for your topics is not always easy. It can be time consuming, with many databases and websites to visit and different accessibility options to review.

Readings are the essential textbooks and reading materials assigned for a topic. The Library oversees their organisation and delivery via Readings lists (Leganto), which are accessed via your topic page in FLO.
With Readings, materials of all types - physical books, eBooks, online or digitised book chapters, scholarly articles, videos, newspaper articles, websites and more - can be assembled to create a structured, comprehensive reading list.
Create or upload your list directly in Readings and send to the Library for completion (including copyright compliance checks). Upload PDF documents in Readings, and let the Library manage copyright for you.
Using Readings is also the easiest and most straightforward way to ensure compliance with all licences, as the Library will manage copyright compliance.
Have you chosen a required or recommended textbook for your topic? If so, the Library and enrolled students need to know about it as soon as possible.
