Reading Lists Online: a refresher


The thing about being an Electronic Resources Librarian is that you find yourself learning all sorts of things about all sort of electronic resources. As far as I’m concerned, the more I know the better! So this week, I’ve been learning a little more about a great service we offer called Reading Lists Online. Reading Lists Online does pretty much exactly as it says on the tin (link?!): reading lists that are online. You’ll find links to Reading Lists Online on the library website and also on Moodle.

Back in October, our Subject Librarian Guest Post covered Reading Lists Online, and as the author, Mary Barden, can express it better, here’s what she had to say about this essential service:

Did you know that you can access your module reading lists online? You should see a reading list block in your Moodle courses or alternatively, you can access your lists via the Reading Lists Online link on the Library website Quick Links menu. Search for your module code or title and you will see your module list. Click on a book title to find where it is located in the Library. But the real advantage of RLO is that you can access e-resources such as ebooks, ejournals and databases direct from the list. Click on Online Resource, login and go direct into the resource.

For further information have a look at the user guide and screen cast video, speak to staff at the Help Desk in the Library or email
