The University of Queensland Library maintains a centralised Learning Resources Service in support of teaching and learning within the University. This paper discusses the recent implementation of a learning resources application, Talis Aspire. The drivers for moving to a new application were to ensure student engagement with learning resources is enhanced, teaching staff are integrated with ownership of reading lists, and the potential for increased staff efficiency is supported by real performance data.
