2.1 What's in 2 Hour and eReadings
Some lecturers give the Library advance notice of what will be on your reading lists. The Library places these items in the 2 Hour collection and online as eReadings so that everyone gets a chance to use them.
Not everything on your reading lists will always be placed in the 2 Hour collection or eReadings.
For most units of study, books, course readers and lecturers' private copies are physically situated in Fisher 2 Hour on level 3 of Fisher Library. These items can be borrowed for two hours or on overnight loan.
Other University of Sydney libraries also have 2 Hour collections, and their loan periods and conditions may be different to those in Fisher Library.
Increasingly, journal articles and chapters of books are digitally scanned and placed in eReadings for you to access on the web from any computer connected to the internet.
To find material held in Fisher 2 Hour and eReadings, you will use the online catalogue.
Practise searching for unit of study readings. You will be given step-by-step guidance on how to proceed. Just remember to read the instructions in the left yellow frame and follow the prompts. The tutorial will open in a new browser window and should take about 12 minutes to complete.
Make sure you enlarge the new window so that you can see the whole screen - you may also need to reduce your font size - as some instructions appear at the bottom of the screen.
