I know, I know, Semester One has barely started and already we’re asking you to send us your Semester Two reading lists.
We have two deadlines:
- Library creates Resource List, deadline: 12th October 2015
- Course Organiser creates Resource List, deadline: 9th November 2015
12th October 2015 – Library creates Resource List
If you have a reading list that you would like the Library Learning Services team to convert into a beautifully formatted Resource List using Talis Aspire, then please send your list along with a completed Resource List Coversheet to IS.Helpline@ed.ac.uk by 12th October.
The Resource List coversheet should be completed for each list submitted. The coversheet gives us all the information we need to prioritise and process you list, e-reserve scans and book recommendations.
When we’ve created your list we’ll send you a summary of the items on your list, books, journals and articles, with information on how many copies are held and at what libraries.
Clearly indicate on the reading list supplied which items you’d like scanned and we’ll pass on these to the e-reserve team.
Also, provided you have prioritised your list using, Essential, Recommended and Further reading and tell us the expected number of students, we’ll make any book recommendations for additional, or new copies, based on the ratios in the table below.
9th November 2015 – Course organiser creates Resource List
Alternatively, you can use Talis Aspire to create your Resource List(s) yourself. There is a range of user guides to help you get started. If you’re not already registered to use Resource Lists, contact IS.Helpline@ed.ac.uk to request access.
If you publish the list by 9th November, prioritise the items on your list and use ‘Note for Library’ to provide details of any e-reserve requests, we’ll review your list, pass on your e-reserve requests, check for number of copies, and, based on the ratios in the table below, pass on any book recommendations for additional or new copies.
|Essential||1 copy per 20 students||HUB/Reserve|
|Recommended||1 copy per 40 students||Short Loan|
|Further Reading||Direct request required from Course Organiser – 1 copy purchased.||Standard Loan|
Please note that in order to align services, the Resource Lists Semester Two deadlines are the same as the e-reserve deadlines
There’s more information on the Resource Lists @ Edinburgh service on the IS website.
