1. What browsers are recommended to work with the ReadingList?
Chrome or Firefox are recommended.
2. There is a display “Reading List" in one of my courses, what is it?
This is a new “ReadingList” tool, which 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.
3. Can I add a book chapter to the list?
You cannot put a direct link to a book chapter but you can add the book title to the list. Then in the full record, add a “Public note” with chapter information.
You can use the “Create” tab to input the resources information into your list.
The Library will order the online version if available and only order one copy of the print if the online version is not available.
Login to Blackboard and go to Course page and click the link “ReadingList”, it will bring you to the ReadingList Platform. To place an item on Course Reserves:
The location options include: Architecture Library, Chung Chi College Elisabeth Luce Moore Library, New Asia College Ch’ien Mu Library, Li Ping Medical Library, Legal Resources Centre, United College Wu Chung Library, University Library and Law Library.
The loan period options include: 2 hours, 4 hours, 1 day, 3 days and 7 days.
Depending on the availability of the items concerned, the library will process course reserves requests within 2 working days after receiving requests. However, please allow more time for the Library to process the requests at the beginning of the semester when there is a large number of requests received at the same time. Longer processing time is also expected for library items which have been borrowed by library users. Course reserves requests are processed in the order they are received. There will be no priority given to requests submitted after the semester has started.
