About working with the Learning Resource Requests page
All learning resources of the subject:
- Resources produced in-house: modules, audiovisuals, etc. (All you will find in the Learning Resources Catalog - http://recursosaprenentatge.aula.uoc.edu/en/-)
- External resources: articles, book chapters, URLs, etc.
- Manual books (you can request them as an external resource)
- Software (you can request them as an external resource)
Note: the only resources that should not be entered by PERA are the Recommended Bibliography and books for studies, which will continue to enter through the Acquisitions form (http://biblioteca.uoc.edu/en/services/acquisitions)
The Learning Resource Requests page (PERA) takes the information from GAT both to identify those responsible for the subjects and to interpret the programming (semiannualization, curriculum, identity relationship). Therefore, it is necessary that the information in this program is consistent and true.
One of the most critical information that PERA takes from GAT is identity. If a subject is not marked as identical in GAT, it will not be presented as identical to PERA.
There are various ways:
- Campus home page >> Links module
- UOC Library website
- Intrauoc (Shared applications >> Library >> Learning resources >> Learning Resource Requests)

If you have more than one role at the UOC, you can use your different profiles on the Learning Resource Requests page.
This video (https://www.screencast.com/t/zeHGMGfExlE) explains how to change profile, which is important because it can mean different permissions.
A request that is in draft status is one that has not yet been sent to the Library. The Library will not receive or deal with your drafts.
You can create any type of request in draft status. Then, once the coordinating professor says the request should be made, it must be sent to the Library.
Draft requests allow coordinating professors time to think about the resources they want for a course. This way, when they reach the point of having decided upon their course design, they can have all the requests they need to send to the Library prepared and ready.
In the following diagram (https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1dhg5P0cGA_r_EqUvW9DSUds4TuyZlw19VC0nGsUsP3E/edit?usp=sharing) we tell you what possibilities PERA offers to work with:
- Resources of the same subject
- of the immediately previous semester with teaching
- of semesters that are not the immediately previous
- Resources of other subjects
The Express renewal is a shortcut for coordinating professors who want to renew all the resources used in the previous semester.
This video (https://www.screencast.com/t/ncSnzgN2gT) explains step by step how to do an Express renewal.
If you have any resources that you want to stop using, you need to enter a request on the Learning Resource Requests page.
If you want to stop using one of the resources you used in past semesters, see what to do in his video (https://www.screencast.com/t/xjFm3kIJx).
Although classrooms allow you to hide resources, this option does not remove them, so students will still be able to see them in the other places where they can view resources, for example in My learning resources or the course plan.
The only way to completely remove a resource is via the Learning Resource Requests page.
This video (https://www.screencast.com/t/euTcpuD5HoRe) explains step by step how to request a resource to be produced in-house.
Resources produced in-house, ie by the UOC, involve commissions, for example a commission to write a text module, or a commission for the UOC to make a recording.
This video (https://www.screencast.com/t/Pgp46mA8jK) explains step by step how to request an external resource.
External resources are those held by third parties; the UOC obtains these resources (through purchases or rights management) so that you can use them in your classrooms.
This video (https://www.screencast.com/t/nIChHQ0o) explains step by step how to reuse resources (external or produced in-house) across different courses.
Reusing resources means taking advantage of a learning resource (external or produced in-house) that is already being used in another course by using it your course, too.
This video (https://www.screencast.com/t/rgPR3uF8siZ) explains step by step how to request a revision or update of a resource produced in-house, which could be from the same course or from another course.
