This paper describes the project to provide a One Stop Shop at USQ which manages course readings and resources. Although all other universities have eReserve systems which contain course readings and systems to manage copyright, the USQ system is unique in it’s scope – to manage all readings and additional resources prescribed for all courses (regardless of source or format), to manage and report on the associated copyright, and to act as the source for all course material production (online, CD & print) of readings. Part two of this paper discusses some of the unanticipated benefits of the new system (DiReCt – the Digital Resource Collection) which has provided new opportunities for the Library in terms of involvement in new directions outside typical Library responsibilities and increased cross divisional projects and business processes. These are helping to position the Library for future growth and survival in a changing world where traditional library services are diminishing.
