EIT’s Academic Resources, Higher Education, and IT departments have been working in the background over the past few months to revamp the EIT eLibrary, hosted on Moodle. We are pleased to announce that the official launch date is 1st October 2020!
What is happening?
We have updated the EIT eLibrary to a new, more user-friendly format. This includes new information to support students throughout their course, easier access to the IDC technical manuals, and a complete overhaul of the Open Access Resources content.
The goal of this update is to improve, modernize, and re-organize the learning resources available to students so that it is easy to navigate and provides more useful content. Some of the major changes include:
- An upgrade to the IDC technical manuals viewer to ensure eBooks are easier to read online
- A complete overhaul of the Open Access Resources content to include a centralized listing of reputable open access publishers as well as lesser-known open access journals
- A new section called Study Support with tips, tricks, and information on report writing, general writing skills, and exam preparation
- An updated library of our master’s graduates’ thesis papers
The new eLibrary will go live on Thursday, 1st October. There will be no changes to student access – everything will still be hosted within Moodle, and students can access the platform in the same way as before. The Academic Resources team will be constantly working on new updates and added content to ensure continuous improvement to the resources we offer.
We hope the new eLibrary will be a welcome improvement for all current and future students.
