Reading Lists Online
Academic staff can create their own online reading lists, to be accessed by students from within Blackboard.
There are a number of benefits to creating your reading lists online:
- seamless access to resources – links to live Library Catalogue records so students can see if an item is available or not, links to individual full text e-journal articles, e-books, links to websites and much more with all resources viewable in one place.
- range of material – we can advise on the full range of resources and delivery methods available, including exploiting e-journals and making used of scanned digitised chapters of books or journal articles from UK publishers.
- resource checking – we can investigate the current availability of material, source additional material, suggest alternatives and ensure that links are up to date and valid.
- consistent description – all references will be displayed in a standardised format and you can annotate your lists to direct students to particular pages or important information.
- efficient updating – once a list has been created it will be very easy to update it either annually or mid-year.
Students are able to access their reading lists from within the appropriate Blackboard module by clicking the Reading List button in the module menu.
For further information please see the Reading Lists Online page on the TEACH channel.
The Library has also created a user guide, to enable you to create and edit your own reading lists.
If you would like to make your reading list available online please contact your Information Librarian
