Reading lists play a key role for students in directing their self-study, helping them understand the boundaries and key concepts of a module and acquainting them with the leading authorities on a subject. Unless advised to the contrary, students expect that all titles on a reading list will be readily available through the University Library in print and/or online.
Why do we need online reading lists?
The aim of the project is to implement an effective and efficient online solution to reading lists. A collaborative project between the Library and Academic staff which ultimately aims to improve internal workflows and enhance the student experience.
The result will help staff and Library Services to implement the Reading List Service Agreement between Schools and Library Services ensuring equity of provision across all Schools.
