Key features of the new reading list service

In summer 2019 the reading list service offered by the library will undergo a major upgrade. This change will bring benefits to the student and staff community at Strathclyde. These include:

  • reading lists will be able to link to all content contained in module handbooks: books, electronic books, reports, journal articles, audio-visual materials, images, websites, blogs, newspaper articles and more
  • lists will be structured in the same way as module handbooks, for example weekly reading or reading by topic
  • links to digitised materials (book chapters, journal articles etc) will be added to your reading list
  • items on reading lists can be tagged as essential reading or further reading
  • reading lists can be updated while modules are in progress - a great feature for fast moving areas
  • teaching staff can add notes to direct students to specific parts of a learning resource, e.g. read chapter 3
  • students can mark items as read and make suggestions of other relevant materials to be added to a reading list
  • reading lists can be exported to EndNote to facilitate the production of a reference list / bibliography 

Important information about the service

  • Library staff will manage the service on behalf of staff and students, including integration with MyPlace and the rollover of reading lists each academic year.
  • Library staff will provide support and advice to academic staff.
