Create your own Resource List

Univeristy of Ediburgh LogoResource Lists @ Edinburgh uses Talis Aspire to create and manage online reading lists.

Create your resource list using Talis Aspire, include the additional information requested by the Library and publish your list by *7th August*. The Library will then review your list and process any e-reserve requests, course (print) reserve and book recommendations.

In order to be able to create and edit lists on Resource Lists @ Edinburgh you will first need to request List Creator access to the service. You can do this by emailing
