Reading Lists @ Strathclyde (Staff): Library Review Stage

Send List Option

When you have finished building your list, send it to the library for review.


Send your list to the library in good time, at least 6 weeks before classes begin.  

What happens at Library review

Library staff will check every citation to ensure sufficient resources are in place to meet student demand. We will take the following criteria into account:
  • Size of class
  • Importance of title (Essential/Recommended/Further Reading)
  • Past borrowing statistics

We will purchase new or additional copies to meet student demand

We will assign appropriate loan periods to print copies to meet student demand (Short Loan, 1 Week Loan etc).

When digitisation requests are made, we will add the link to your reading list. 

We will monitor reservation requests and take action if demand is high. 

We will check all links on a list to ensure they work. If broken, we will fix it for you or contact you by email.

We will perform a copyright check to ensure compliance with Copyright Licensing Agency rules. We will suggest alternative options to avoid copyright infringement.  

When should I use this button?

Use the SEND LIST button every time you add items to your list. 

What happens if I don't use the button?

Library staff will not be alerted to the change in your list. 

Most importantly, we will not see your purchase requests and will not order necessary titles.
