Formatted Abstract/Summary At the beginning of 2002, staff at the University of Queensland Cybrary began the process of creating a digitised collection of course materials to enhance access to an existing print collection of photocopied journal articles and book chapters. Changes to copyright around this time allowed for scanning of book chapters and journal articles in limited quantities by educational institutions for teaching and learning purposes. To extend the Cybrary's course materials service and to ensure compliance with Copyright, the University established a centralised course materials server, to be managed by the Cybrary.

This paper outlines the proposal to create the online course materials service for UQ academics and students and the project implementation plan. This involved collaboration between librarians, library technicians and library assistants and utilised the knowledge and skills of staff from functional areas of the Cybrary, such as Information Access Services and Library Technology Services. The paper further explains the procedures used by library assistants to create access to journal articles and book chapters online, enabling around-the-clock accessibility to required course readings and other appropriate in-demand course materials. Some related issues covered :
- Cost effectiveness
- Space saving
- Staff time
- What outcomes we aim for in the future
