You may want to add the resource lists of the modules you are responsible for, or you share with other colleagues, to My Lists. Next time you log on to Reading Lists Online, you can simply select the My lists tab to find the list you need.
To add a resource list to My lists:
Do not make a copy of the reading list, as it will cause problems with digitised extracts we have already embedded on to the list.
We recommend reviewing your reading list on RLO each academic year, to ensure the resources added to the list are still relevant to the module you teach. Library staff will review your reading list and check for new editions and e-book availability. If you are still providing your students with word documents or PDFs of module outlines, please make sure that the content of the reading list in RLO, matches the revised content of the list on the module outline and vice versa. This will help to avoid confusion and misunderstanding.
If the title or the code of the module has changed, please contact your Subject Librarian. They will update the information for you, and link the new code to the hierarchy, so the reading list will display correctly in Moodle.
If the module you taught last year is now offered to Year 2 instead of Year 3 or vice versa, and the reading list has not changed, please contact your Subject Librarian who will make a copy of the list and create a new node in the hierarchy, so the reading list can be linked to Moodle.
Please note that Moodle resets overnight, changes to the hierarchy may not display until the following day.
It is very important that you clearly label the references on the reading list that are essential readings.
To add the Essential reading label click on the drop down menu next to the reference and select the label.
This gives clear guidance to the students enrolled on the module, and it is extremely important for library staff who rely on this information to calculate resource allocation and purchase new or additional copies.
You may have added the references to a section of the list. marked as core or essential reading, this does not automatically assign a label to the reference. Students have the option to filter the results to type of material and importance.
To order new key titles as quickly as possible, Library staff run reports from reading lists and prioritise items marked as essential readings.
You have three options to change the order references appear on the reading list. Go to the item on the list you want to move, then:
If you want to change the order you will be teaching the module, or you want to swap around the topics on your reading list, you can quickly move around the sections of the reading list and all the references listed under that topic.
You can add notes for students to the reading list.
