Using the Reading List Service: Preparing for the New Semester

Our Reading List Service is now up and running and we are keen to work with as many academic staff as possible in preparation for the upcoming academic year.

The service integrates Library resources, reading lists and Blackboard, making our resources more intuitive and accessible to students.


It saves academic time by simplifying ordering and offering chapter and article scanning.

As Professor Caroline McGregor, School of Political Science & Sociology says:
"It really is an excellent system and has made life so much easier in relation to developing the reading lists and learning resources for students. 
Students also find it makes the process of searching and accessing materials much more accessible. 
The fact that it also acts as an ordering system for new books takes another layer of administration from the module planning phase and has worked really well for us up to now. "  
See an example of a Reading List with links to our Library catalogue, full text  and YouTube/web resources.
