Reading lists: a guide for academics: Reviewing and publishing lists

Reviewing and publishing lists (video)

Video summary

  • When changes have been made to a list, those changes will be saved automatically in draft form. They will not be visible to students until it's been published.
  • If new items have been added to the list it's important that the list be sent to review by the library before being published. This is so the library can check we have sufficient copies of books and to make sure that any links (e.g. to journal articles) have the correct suffix added to the URL to authenticate off-campus access. The library will publish the list after the review is complete.
  • If only minor changes have been made (for example adding a student note to a resource) then the list can be published straight away without the need to send to the library for review.

Reviewing and publishing lists (step-by-step instructions)

Request review

When new items have been added to a list it's important to request a library review.

  • This is so library staff can check we have copies in stock or have sufficient copies.
  • E-resources also have to be checked to ensure the correct suffix is added to the URL for seamless off-campus access.
The library will publish the list for students to access once the review is complete.

To request a review, click on 'Edit' and then 'Request review'.

Publish list
  • If the list was sent to review, the library will publish when the review is complete.
  • If only minor changes have been made (for example adding a student note to a resource) then the list can be published straight away without the need to send to the library for review. Click the 'Publish' button to make any changes you made visible to students.
