Reading List Good practice and guidance 

  • If you can’t see your list here make sure it is published (click on the 3 dots in a row near the edit button, then scroll down to publish) if that doesn’t work contact your Information Specialist.
  • Naming convention: ensure that the module code appears in the reading list name, this will facilitate better discovery.
  • Digitisations:  for print books with no electronic copy up to one chapter is permitted within Copyright, in some instances it is possible to get a second chapter digitised but there are cost implications as this is much more expensive.

              Where possible link to an eBook requesting the students to read a specified page range.

  • Larger cohorts: ensure links are created to eBooks where possible.
  • Create sections: this makes it easier for students to view the list.
  • Size: less can be more, consider a shorter list with targeted reading.
  • List instructors should be the module lead, others as collaborators.
