Thank you for all your support in working with the Library to get your teaching resources and reading lists ready for Semester 1. We now need your help to ensure we have everything ready for your students for Semester 2. Here’s what you need to know:
If a module has a reading list and is no longer running in 2022/23 or has changed semester or module code, please
Review the importance tags on your new list to ensure they are correct and tag any new items according to our policy for the purchase of reading list books. This enables us to make sure we provide sufficient access to the resources on your list. Full instructions are available in our user guides.
If your reading lists are not currently in Reading Lists Online, you can add them to the system yourself following the instructions in our user guides.
If there is no link for Reading Lists Online in Blackboard you can add the link yourself following the instructions in our user guides. If a course has changed code, please with details of both codes and the Library will manually relink the list.
Apply for an eTextbook for your students
The Library’s eTextbook Programme provides each student on a course unit with individual access to an interactive, electronic textbook where possible. A core textbook is defined as "A textbook which students are required to use extensively throughout the course" in the Library policy for the purchase of reading list books.
For an item on your reading list to be considered for the eTextbook Programme , you should tag it as ’core’ in Reading Lists Online and click submit changes to the Library by Friday, 16 December to enable the team to process these requests. If you submit your request after this deadline, it will still be registered and processed if possible.
We only provide access to ’Core’ texts on the eTextbook Programme via Reading Lists Online, it will be supplied on the Kortext platform via your Reading List in time for the start of teaching. Course instructors will receive a free electronic desk copy directly from Kortext. Please if there are any additional teaching staff who require access. Instructors can also access a comprehensive analytics dashboard to track and encourage student engagement with their etextbook.
