Reading List: Add Library resources

Creating unit reading lists

Add library resources

Now that you have created a Reading List and have added sections to it, it is time to add readings to your list:

1) Select Add Items from the menu bar. 

Make sure you have added Sections to your Reading List. It is recommended that you set up your Reading List in the same structure as your Learning Materials (weeks, modules, ...). 

2) After selecting Add Items you can select from three options: Library Search, Blank form or Collection. 

To add a resource via Library Search, select Library Search.

For information on Blank Form and Collection, see the tabs Add online resources and My Collection.

3) Use the Search function on the right hand side to search library resources by title, author or keyword.



Please do not tick the box 'Include records without full-text access', as that means you are adding readings the students do not have access to. 

4) Narrow down the results by using the Advanced Search options or selecting the Resource Type or Availability .

5) To add an item, drag and drop the selected reading into the appropriate section.


6) Another way is to click on an item in the list of results, and then select the appropriate list and section to add the resource to. Then click Add. Clicking Add & Edit will give you more options to add details to the source if needed.
