Answer

The Importance Level Student Purchase is for the prescribed textbook for a course. Students enrolled in this course are expected to buy this text as it will be referred to constantly. The library will place one or more copies of a text labelled Student Purchase on 2-hour Course Reserve unless the lecturer requests otherwise in Note to Library.

The Importance Level Required is for resources students should read, view, or listen to in preparation for a lecture, tutorial or piece of course work. Depending on the resource type, the Library will place one or more copies of a resource labelled Required on 3-day Course Reserve unless the lecturer requests otherwise in Note to Library.

The Importance Level Recommended is for resources students may choose to read, view, or listen in order to expand their understanding of course content. The Library will take no action unless specifically requested in Note to Library.

The Importance Level Optional is for resources students may choose to read, view, or listen to if they wish to go beyond the course content. The Library will take no action unless specifically requested in Note to Library.
