Reading lists for staff

Providing resource lists online for the courses you teach.

MMU's online reading lists use Talis Aspire software, allowing you to:

-easily add and remove items from your reading list.

-quickly and easily change the reading list structure.

-notify the Library about items you would like us to either purchase or digitise.

-embed items from your reading list directly within the content of a Moodle course page.

-annotate your list and make the resources more immediate and engaging for students.

If you are interested in managing your own list contact your subject librarian and they will send you an account invitation.
