Click on the 'My bookmarks' tab and then 'Install bookmark button'. Follow the instructions on the screen to add the link to your bookmarks bar.
Click on 'My Lists' and then the 'Create new list' button. Enter the module name and code, and select the time period to get started.
Search the library website (or a publisher's website/Amazon if it is not in the library's collection). From the item record click on the 'Add to my Bookmarks' button (see Step 2).
Click on the 'Request review' button. We'll check the links and make sure the list appears in Blackboard.
Before you create a list we recommend you learn about creating bookmarks.
Once you have a few resources saved to add to your reading list, you are ready to start creating or editing a reading list. Items that are saved by as bookmarks in the reading lists are available to add to any list in the future.
To create a new list select 'My Lists' from the navigation bar, then the 'Create new list' button.
Enter the module (list) name and code, and select the time period to get started.
We have a naming convention for list names: include the module name and module code in brackets.
Example: Research Skills 3 (PRD3004M)
A list does not need to follow naming conventions if it is not associated with a module, for example a list of reading recommendations for a book group or material promoted as part of an event.
This field is not mandatory but can be used to add information about the list, add collaborators names or simply give some overview guidance on using the list.
The hierarchy allows us to link the reading list to a specific module on Blackboard once the list is published. Search and select the relevant module code from the results.
You can also add student numbers when selecting a hierarchy code. If these are known please add them since accurate student numbers can help us understand the potential demand for an item and help with any decisions on collection management and digitisations.
Why isn't my module appearing in the hierarchy search?
Select a time period. This allows us to associate the list with the correct module in Blackboard, and enables a student to see they are working from the latest version of a reading list.
For each teaching period, your list will be copied to a new version for you by the centralised rollover process. This is to ensure the right list appears in the correct version of the module in Blackboard. This also makes sure that any digitised item will be viewable by that cohort of students.
