Deakin University has a long history of providing higher education both at a distance and on campus, and the Library has provided a foundational role for the delivery of learning and information resources to all students as the University’s strategies for effective teaching and learning have evolved over the years. The strategic impetus for the way the Library has offered lists of readings and resources has also evolved along with the University (and sometimes ahead of it), and giving curated structure to course and unit based learning resources remains a valued option for many academics. Not all want that structure however, and other approaches are also facilitated by the Library.
