Learning resources search

The learning resource search service is a bespoken service for your teaching activity: be it to prepare teaching of a new subject, redesign an existing one, use them for a continuous assessment text or include them as classroom resources.

We offer a tailor-made report based on your information needs that will include a selection of learning resources: UOC-generated materials used in other subjects, resources available at the Library (books, articles, specialist journals, etc.) and other external information sources (open or with licences that permit teaching uses or to assess their acquisition).

How it works - Search for learning resources

Complete the form with detailed information about your search. Please specify why you need it, any keywords and the type of resources.

Depending on your needs, we offer two types of report:

  1. Proposed development or design of a new subject/programme: state of the question of the main information sources (databases and specialist journals) on a specific subject area available at the library or externally, where they are accessible and what their most outstanding features are.
  2. Configuration of the learning resources of a subject/programme: comprehensive and tailor-made report of your subject/programme, with a selection of specific resources available at the Library (books, articles, press news, etc.) and also of the external resources, be they open (related institutions and agencies, reports, white papers, videos, etc.) or ones that require copyright management. Depending on the specific type of need, the subscription or purchase of external resources may also be considered.

The learning resource search reports answer such questions as:

  • Do you need resources to design a new programme, subject or activity?
  • What resources do we have available at the Library on the subject of X?
  • Are there open materials or materials with a licence for teaching use on the subject of X?
  • What key authors or major institutions are there on the subject of X?
  • What learning resources do we have with a view to starting a new programme?
