Resource Lists @ Edinburgh (using Talis Aspire) – Workshops

Univeristy of Ediburgh LogoLibrary Learning Services are running Resource List training workshops in May and June.

Sessions will include a brief overview of Resource Lists using Talis Aspire followed by a hands-on workshop. Attendees will be able to start creating their own Resource Lists and have the opportunity to find out more about managing lists using Talis Aspire.

Talis Aspire is a reading list system which allows course organisers to easily create, publish and maintain online reading lists. The system is currently used by approximately 60 HE institutions in the UK.

Any resource with a URL (web address) can be added to a list, including, books, e-books, book chapters, journal articles and videos. Course organisers can assign priority to list items (Essential, Recommended or Further reading) and add notes for students. Statistical data on list usage is also available to course organisers.

Dates are shown below and available to book via MyEd:

– Wednesday 13th May 2-4pm

– Thursday 21st May 10-12noon

– Wednesday 3rd June 10-12 noon

– Monday 15th June 2-4pm

More information on the service can be found on the Resource Lists using Talis Aspire webpage and the ResourceLists@Edinburgh Blog.
