Key features of the reading list service
In summer 2019 the reading list service offered by the library underwent a major upgrade.
These are the key features:
Reading lists can contain a variety of resource types: books, electronic books, reports, journal articles, audio-visual materials, images, websites, blogs, newspaper articles and more
Lists can 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) can be added to your reading list
Items on reading lists can be tagged as essential, recommended 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
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.
