Digital and Free, La Trobe University

In 2020 and 2021 La Trobe University Library initiated a project to move as many ‘prescribed’ and ‘pre-reading’ subject readings as possible to digital delivery. The aim of this project was to ensure access to students who were unable to access or obtain print material due to the COVID pandemic and related restrictions on movement. In 2022, this Digital and Free initiative is being integrated into the daily practice of multiple Library teams and into our reading list, Talis, with a more ambitious goal of making subject readings not merely digital, but also freely accessible, always available, and open.

Hugh Rundle, Manager Digital Discovery, La Trobe University
