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.


Batman returns… to the library

Once upon a time there was a baby bat, books and some very eager school kids…

This week, Mt Gravatt’s Library storytime received some special guests just in time for Halloween–three orphan baby bats from Bat Conservation and Rescue Queensland. At 11am Friday 30 October the kiddies from Yarranlea Primary School were treated to a storytime with a difference thanks to the volunteer team from Bat Conservation and Rescue Queensland.

The bat rescuers joined the students at this month’s storytime to give an educational talk and spread the word about bat conservation in South-East Queensland. The kids were introduced to three orphan babies bats as young as three weeks old and one who had only been rescued that morning.

Mt Gravatt library’s storytime began earlier this year and has become a huge hit with the local school students who now regularly visit their local library.

The Mt Gravatt campus and the Yarranlea Primary School share a campus which is why this fantastic community initiative began.
