Reading List: Creating a Reading List

Creating unit reading lists

Creating a reading list

1) Select Reading List from your left side menu (BB Original) or the Unit Content (BB Ultra). If Reading List does not display follow the steps under the tab Accessing Reading List in this guide.

Once Reading List opens you can see the unit this reading list will be applied to. 

Select Create It.


2) Give your Reading List a name. Follow this naming convention:

Unit code_semester_ year 

Example: NUR250_SS_2020

You can also add a description (not required).

Select Create.


3) You can use a blank template or a pre-populated template:

Template Week 1-Week 12 has sections for prescribed texts, recommended texts and a section for each week of the semester.

Template Module 1-Module 6 has sections for prescribed texts, recommended texts and a section for 6 modules.

Template Topic 1-Topic 6 has sections for prescribed texts, recommended texts and a section for 6 topics.

You can use the pre-populated templates and edit them if you need extra sections, want to delete sections, or if you want to add specific names to weeks, modules or topic. The blank template allows you to set up your own sections as required. 


4) If your Reading List looses its course association at this stage, a blue Associate to course pop up will appear. 

Select Associate List.









Type the 3 letters of your course/unit code into Look up course and select the correct course from the drop-down.
















Select Associate & Close.

















If you would like to change the course association at a later stage or if you would like to associate a Reading List to two courses:

In your Reading List, click on the three dots at the top of the Reading List to open up the menu options.

Select Manage course association.

Then follow the steps above.








5) If you have used the Blank Template (or if you want to add additional sections to a Reading List) select New Section.






Give your section a title (eg. Week 1) and a short description (not required).

Select Create.




6) If you would like to edit or delete a section, click on the 3 dots to the right side of the section. Select Edit section or Delete section from the drop-down. 


7) If you would like to delete a reading list, select the 3 dots to the right of your reading list and select Delete from the drop-down. 


8) Once your reading list is created and you have sections added, you can start to Add Items to your list (for details see the next few tabs on this guide). 


9) If you would like to see all the reading lists you have created, select Lists from the top left corner.

This will show you the reading list associated with the specific unit you are accessing Reading List from.










To see all your reading lists, select 'x' after Lists associated with course.

You will not only see the reading lists associated with the specific course, but all reading lists you have created.
