Organising Your Reading Lists for 2011/12

Posted on July 26, 2011


Many module leaders and academics are working on updating their module documents and NOW learning rooms for the 2011/12 academic year.  Each learning room in NOW should have an interactive reading list available for students which has been designed using our Resource List Management System.  By putting your lists into this, it not only ensures that students can easily access and navigate their way to their course readings, but it also alerts us in the library as to what items we need to have available.

One of the main reasons for providing academic staff with this tool is that it moves away from a more static list of books, and allows you to direct students to interesting websites, online videos, electronic books and journals, etc.  You can also leave notes for your students about particular items if there’s something of interest that you want to emphasise.

I’ve created a brief video of how to set yourself up on the system, and get started using it.

If you’ve not used the software before, or if it’s been a while since you tried it, both Ian and I will be more than happy to help you with this.  We do have a userguide that we can send, plus a guide on how to make digitisation requests so scanned chapters that you ask for will also appear in your lists.
