In response to LLC colleagues’ interest and requests, the Library Learning Services will provide a Resources Lists workshop specially for staff of the LLC School who are using or planning to use the Resource Lists for their course teaching.
- Time: 2.00 – 3.00pm Wednesday 17th April 2019
- Venue: Room 1.02 (Computer Lab), 50 George Square
Library staff will be on hand to answer any Resource Lists-related questions and to tell you about the help available to set up a Resource List for your course. To help us manage the session, if you’d like to attend, could you please follow the link below to make a booking:
The event is also visible to LLC staff in MyEd and is bookable there. We hope to see many of you at the workshop!
LLC has the largest number (208 as of Jan 2019) of published Resource Lists among all the Schools of the University, though it only represents 27% of our LLC courses.
What you will learn
By the end of this session you will be able to create and edit your own Resource Lists and understand how the Library is using Resource Lists to manage the purchase of books, provide access to copyright compliant scans and manage HUB/Reserve requests.
Why use Resource Lists?
- to improve the student experience
- to make it easier for course organisers to manage the provision of library materials for teaching
About Resource Lists
Resource Lists provide students with easy and consistent access to key course reading materials. The Library currently provides 1900 Resource Lists for courses across every school. Lists can be viewed via the service homepage: http://resourcelists.ed.ac.uk However, most students access their Resource Lists via a link in the left hand menu in the corresponding Learn course.
Resource Lists is the preferred route for Course Organisers to manage the provision of library materials. Once set up, lists are rolled over each June and can be reviewed and edited for the next academic year.
Any resource with a web address can be added to a list, including, books, e-books, book chapters, journal articles and videos. Course organisers assign priority to list items (Essential, Recommended or Further reading) and add notes for students indicating which chapters or pages should be read. The Library uses the priorities and student numbers to inform number of copies purchased and loan periods.
Resource Lists provide students with a number of features to help them manage their course reading. Students can create their own collection, make suggestions for new items to be added to lists and export their lists in their preferred citation style.
