ReadingList: Home

The Library has a new “ReadingList” tool, that aims to make it easy and engaging to create, access, and manage reading lists. Staff can build, maintain, and share reading lists on Blackboard; librarians can provide resources more efficiently and scale up to support more courses, and more importantly, students can access all course materials in one place. 

What is ReadingList?

Highlights of this tool -- ReadingList include:

  • Easy to use: structured, annotated reading lists that are easy to share and maintain
  • Intuitive user interface that could be available on any device
  • Save faculty time through workflows for creating, sharing, and maintaining lists year after year
  • Identification of Library holdings: automatic identification of resources that the library owns or is already subscribing to; maximizing the use of library-owned resources
  • Reading lists that can include all material types, including dynamic linking to full texts
  • Potential to improve copyright compliance
  • Interactive: interface for students to share feedback and suggest items

For enquiries, please contact your Faculty Liaison Librarian.
