Library provision of reading list materials and the protocol for submitting lists for processing is very different to the established procedure this year. Please read the following very carefully.
In response to the University's decision to adopt a blended model of teaching and learning in 2020-21, it is vital that students are able to fully access all essential library materials online. Although the physical libraries should be open, access is likely to remain limited. It is also likely that not all students will be present on campus at all times and the necessary quarantining of books (for a minimum of 72 hours) means that access to the library’s print collection will be more challenging. The potential for further lockdowns continues to be a threat.
If library support is needed for modules delivered in 2020-21, tutors will need to develop reading lists that align with the following key principles:
Online reading lists should now be maintained by the module tutors. Request editing rights from email@example.com if you don't have them already. New materials can be added or deleted using the instructions available in the Talis Aspire tab near the top of this page. Books already in the collections can be added to a reading list from their records in the catalogue or Discover using the Talis bookmarking tool. Books not already in the collections can be flagged for purchase by bookmarking them from an external supplier like Amazon or the publisher's web pages, adding them to the relevant reading list, then by selecting 'Request review' from the edit menu above the list.
