Features of a great reading list
Consider structuring your reading list to aid student reading. Lists can be structured in several ways: chronologically, by topic, by type of reading materials. See examples below.
Make use of the tagging feature of reading lists. Items can be tagged as essential reading, recommended reading or further reading. Students can filter lists using these tags and library staff will use these categories to make decisions about purchasing materials.
Use the Public Note feature to direct students to particular parts of texts or items on lists, e.g. compare this article written in 2019 with the one above written 10 years ago or read chapter on classroom management.
If there are chapters or sections of books which are essential reading, use the 'Request Digitisation' feature. Subject to copyright, we will scan the chapter / section and link it to your list.
