It’s super easy to find your course readings

Did you know your course readings are available on Learning@Griffith

Your course readings are super easy to find, so there’s almost no excuse to not do your readings!

You can find a detailed list of all of your course’s readings by going to the Readings link in your Learning@Griffith course site, or simply typing in your course code here. Too easy, right?

Well imagine this is an infomercial, because wait – there’s more! Not only will it provide you a list of all your readings, it will also link you directly to them.

If it’s an online resource, you’ll see a link to the right which says Online Resource (makes sense, right?). Simply click on this link and it’ll take you straight to the resource. eBook, website, video – you’ll be ready to read or watch!

If it’s not an online resource, don’t fret, ‘cause it should be in our library! Simply click on the title, and you’ll be taken to a page which includes the availability and location of the book in our libraries.

You can even personalise your reading lists by assigning a read status to resources (will read, reading now, have read, and won’t read – ‘cause let’s be honest), and adding study notes.


It’s time to get your textbooks sorted

It’s the first day of week three, and we’re sure you’re well and truly getting into the swing of things. So if you haven’t sorted out your textbooks, it’s time you do!

You can find all of your course readings through the Readings link in your Learning@Griffith course site. Some textbooks are available as eBooks via the library catalogue (or the View Online link in your reading list). 

Griffith Libraries also hold copies of all required textbooks in the Reserve collections. Just check the link in your course reading list to see the location and availability of these books.

Now, in some instances, you may need to buy an actual, physical book. You know one with pages that you can turn and have that lovely book smell (we all sniff books right?).

You can purchase brand new textbooks at a campus bookshop; there are bookshops on every Griffith campus. Though we understand that this process may leave your bank account feeling a little sad.

There is a cheaper alternative. Did you know that Griffith also has a Textbook Exchange? Griffith students are able to list their pre-loved textbooks on the Textbook Exchange for sale.

You can search for the text you are after, and view information including the location, condition, and price (and hopefully save a bit of moolah too). And once you’re done with the book, you could even re-list it!
