Reading List: Roll over, Re-associate or Copy a Reading List

Creating unit reading lists

Roll over, re-associate or copy a Reading List

There are various reasons why you might want to re-use a Reading List:

You have created a Reading List for Unit123_S1_2021 and would like to use the same Reading List in Unit123_S2_2021. 

You have created a Reading List for Unit123_S2_2021 and would like to use the same Reading List in Unit567_S2_2021.

There are various ways you can create a copy of an existing Reading List to use in another unit or to use as a base for a new Reading List. You could:

Roll over a Reading List

You would use the roll over option, if you for example created a Reading List in S1 for a unit that is also run in S2. Instead of having to create a new Reading List for S2, you could roll over the S1 Reading List, creating a copy, which you can then use in S2. This will also allow you to edit the Reading List, add new readings, replace readings, etc. 

1) Open up you new unit and add the Reading List tool from the unit tools - see Accessing Reading List  

2) Select Reading List from your left side menu (BB Original) or the Unit Content (BB Ultra). 

 

Scroll down and select Roll Over

3) Select from which course you would like to roll over a Reading List - enter the unit code and select the unit from the drop down

4) Leave the defaults settings, unless you would like to retain some information from a previous list

Select Roll Over 

5) Select OK

6) The Reading List will open, associated to the new unit. It will show 'Rolled Over' behind the title at the top of the Reading List. 

Re-name the Reading List by clicking on the three dots behind the title and selecting Edit.

Delete the wording '(Rolled Over)' and adjust the semester and year to reflect the unit information. 

7) Now that you have rolled over the Reading List, you can add, remove or replace readings. 

Once finished, make sure you submit the Reading List for Library Review

 

Change course association of a Reading List

You could use this option if you are using identical Reading Lists in two units. 

You could also use this option to move a Reading List from one unit to another, by deleting the existing course associating of the Reading List and adding an association to a different unit. 

1) Open the Reading List you are planning to change or add course association for  
2) Click on the three dots behind the Reading List title
3) Select Manage course association from the drop down

4) You can see what course the list is associated with and you have the option to look up and add a course 

If you would like your Reading List associated with two courses, skip steps 5 and 6. 

5) If you want to delete the current course association, click on the three dots behind the unit the Reading List is associated with
6) From the drop down select Remove this course
7) To associate the Reading List with another course, look up the course by unit code (or title)
8) Select the correct unit from the drop down and select Associate & Close

 

 

9) Now that you have rolled over the Reading List, you can add, remove or replace readings. 

Remember that if your Reading List is associated with two units, the changes you make will seen by the students from both units.

Once finished, make sure you submit the Reading List for Library Review

 

Create a copy of a Reading List

Another way to create a new Reading List from an existing one, is to create a copy of an existing list and then associate the copy with a unit. 

1) Open the Reading List you would like to copy  
2) Click on the three dots behind the Reading List title
3) From the drop down select Duplicate list

4) The duplicated list will now display

It is identified by '(1)' behind the Reading List title

5) You an change the title of the Reading List by selecting the three dots behind the Reading List title and selecting Edit, which will allow you to change the Reading List title
6) Click on the three dots behind the Reading List title again and associate the course with the unit you would like to use it in - see Change course association of a Reading List for details
7) Now that you have created a copy of the Reading List and associated it with a unit, you can add, remove or replace readings. 

Once finished, make sure you submit the Reading List for Library Review
