ASPIRE@RGU – get your reading lists online – information for academic staff

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

If you are interested in getting your reading lists for next academic year on to ASPIRE@RGU where they will:

  • Be online, dynamic and up to date
  • Give easier access to online resources
  • Be integrated into the modules on CampusMoodle
  • Then simply send your reading list in to the library. Once we receive a list from you we will do all the work in creating and publishing the list for you. We will also check for new editions, eBooks and so on, and let you know what we find.

    For more information about ASPIRE@RGU take a look at the ASPIRE@RGU information on the library website.

    Problems with access to ASPIRE@RGU – Update

    Monday, January 14th, 2013

    The library is sorry to report that there are still problems with access to ASPIRE@RGU but that progress has been made in fixing this problem.

    On campus you should now be able to access ASPIRE@RGU using the Firefox browser.

    However there are still problems with using Internet Explorer and the links to ASPIRE@RGU lists within CampusMoodle are still not showing up.

    We apologise for the continued problems with accessing ASPIRE@RGU and will keep you up to date as work is done in solving this.

    To find out how to access your ASPIRE@RGU lists when off campus please follow this link to a previous blog post.
