Turning your Reading List into a Resource List – we can do it for you

Univeristy of Ediburgh Logo


Did you know that Library Learning Services are able to take your existing Reading List and turn it into a Resource List for you?

As this semester winds down we all start looking towards the new academic year. If you have an existing reading list that you would like to see transformed into an interactive online reading list we can do this for you!

Simply send us your list, and the earlier the better.

Part of this service also includes providing a summary of the items on your list, books, journals and articles, with information on how many are held and at what locations within the University of Edinburgh Libraries. This means you can see in advance where additional materials might need to be ordered or moved into reserved/short loan sections of the library.

The earlier a request is placed for additional library materials the greater the likelihood they will be on the shelves ready for students in the new academic year.

Send us your reading list  and we will transfer it into a resource list on resourcelists.ed.ac.uk for you, then place it back in your hands for any alterations and to publish at a time of your own choosing.

We will provide information on how to edit and maintain your Resource List once it has been handed over to you, and we are available to answer questions and provide Resource List guidance during every step of the academic year.

Additional training and assistance in the maintenance of the Resource Lists can be arranged by contacting Library.Learning@ed.ac.uk.

If you would like to send us your reading list there are a few important pieces of information that will help us provide you with the best possible service:
