About Reading List

Reading List is a reading/resource management system, which allows you to create, manage and evaluate unit readings:

  • Create one Reading List for your unit
  • Organise readings in sections, as per your unit content (for example weekly or by topic)
  • Re-use an existing Reading List and edit it for the next semester or another unit with similar readings
  • Create your Reading List from your Learnline unit
  • Store articles for future use
  • Request a chapter to be digitised from within the Reading List
  • Request a resource to be purchased from within the Reading List

Each Learnline 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

This video clip provides a brief overview of Reading List (a more detailed video clip is provided at the bottom of this page): 

Reading List workflow

  • From your Learnline unit, access the Reading List link in the unit tools (BB Ultra) or Reading List in the main menu (BB Original)
  • Create the Reading List
  • Populate the Reading List by adding resources from Library Search and other resources
  • Send the list to the library for review
  • The library will check your list, purchase resources if required, fulfill digitisation requests, ensure the list is copyright compliant, etc.
  • Once all items are approved, the library will publish your list
  • Make the Reading List visible to your students in your unit
