About Reading List
Reading List is a reading/resource management system, which allows you to create, manage and evaluate unit readings by:
Creating one Reading List for your unit
Organising readings in sections (for example weekly or by topic)
Allowing you to re-use an existing reading list and easily edit it for the next semester or another unit with similar readings
Allowing you to create your Reading List in your Black Board unit
Allowing you to store articles for future use
Each Black Board unit has a link to Reading List in the unit tools (BB Ultra) or the main menu (BB Original).
Instructions on how to create your reading lists are in this guide. For any question, please contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org
This video clip provides a brief overview of Reading List (a more detailed video clip is provided at the bottom of this page):
