We now have 1200 published Resource Lists for the start of Semester 1 2017/8 and are already working on Semester 2 Resource Lists.
If you would like the Library to build your Semester 2 Resource List, please send your annotated list with a completed coversheet to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 17th October. (If you have a Semester 2 list ready, please send it now and we’ll start working on it before the deadline).
You can download the coversheet here: http://www.docs.is.ed.ac.uk/docs/library/ResourceLists/Resource_List_Coversheet_2017.docx
Alternatively, if you’re creating your Semester 2 Resource List yourself, please publish and use ‘Send to library’ to request a review by Monday 30th October.
Remember to prioritise items on your list using the ‘Essential’, ‘Recommended’ and ‘Further reading’ tags, and to request e-reserve scans, use the ‘Digitisation’ tag and ‘Library discussion’ to provide page numbers or chapter details of pages you’d like scanned.
We’re also running some bookable training sessions throughout October:
16th Oct 2017 (10:00-12:00) https://www.events.ed.ac.uk/index.cfm?event=book&scheduleID=26678
19th Oct 2017 (14:00-16:00) https://www.events.ed.ac.uk/index.cfm?event=book&scheduleID=26679
24th Oct 2017 (10:00-12:00) https://www.events.ed.ac.uk/index.cfm?event=book&scheduleID=26680
Please contact Library.Learning@ed.ac.uk if you have any questions about Resource Lists or would like to arrange an alternative training session.

It’s the start of semester and all Semester 1 lists are published – we’re now working on Semester 2 lists. However, we’re hearing that some students are having issues accessing their lists via Learn. While we do some investigating, there are workarounds in place.
If you’re having problems accessing their Resource Lists, and see an ‘illegal institution’ error message, there’s a few things you can try:
- If you’re going through LEARN, don’t use Internet Explorer! Use Chrome or Firefox;
- If you’re going through LEARN and using Safari, you may need to change your browser settings to ‘accept cookies’;
- If you’re still having problems, you can log in through the homepage (http://resourcelists.ed.ac.uk ). You need to make sure and sign in to have full text access to resources (go to ‘Guest’ top right of screen to log in).
- If you’re still unable to access Resource Lists, we can check your Library account is set up correctly – if this is the case, drop us a line (email@example.com ) with your details and we’ll investigate.
There’s a student guide and further information on the Information Services webpages: http://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/research-teaching-staff/resource-lists
Please keep an eye on the Resource List blog (http://libraryblogs.is.ed.ac.uk/resourcelists/ ) and/or follow us on Twitter @ResourceListsEd for regular updates.
You can generate a permalink for your Resource List which you can then add to a web page or document.
Don’t copy the link in the browser address bar.
Instead, go to the ‘Reading Lists’ option menu (…) at the top of your list and select ‘Permalink’ from the drop down menu. You have the option to create a permalink to your list here.
Any permalink you use should have “SAML” at the end. Eg
If you’re using Resource Lists via the Find lists homepage: http://resourcelists.ed.ac.uk and you’re having problems accessing resources on a Resource List, check if you’re logged in.
If you see ‘Guest’ in the top right of the screen you’re not logged in!
Not Logged in, ‘Guest user’
If you’re a ‘Guest’ you can still see the list but you won’t be able to click through for full text access.
Click on ‘Guest’ and use your EASE details to sign in. When you see your name, you can start using Resource Lists and should be able to access all the resources on your list.
