Reading Lists (classic view) @ Strathclyde (Staff): 1. Getting started with reading lists

Getting started with reading lists

Begin by adding the reading list link to your MyPlace page and the Cite It button to your Bookmarks bar.

Please note your reading list and MyPlace page will automatically establish a connection based on a matching class code.

For example, a list named AA100 will work with the AA100 MyPlace page but it will not work with MyPlace pages with non-matching names e.g. "AA100/AA120". If you have a MyPlace page for multiple class codes, please contact the Reading List team for advice.

Accessing Reading Lists via MyPlace

Step 1:

Login to MyPlace and navigate to the relevant class.

Step 2: 

Turn editing on and select Add an activity or resource
