How do I get started on creating reading lists?

For guidance on how to get started with Talis, take a look at our reading list help pages.

Alternatively, you can book a 1-2-1 session with a member of the reading list team by emailing libread@essex.ac.uk

How do I make my list appear in Moodle?

To make the reading list accessible from Moodle as a link in the boxes on the side, you have to 'Add a Block' and select 'Reading Lists'. When you have a published list that is linked to the hierarchy, it will appear in this block.

If you would like more information on integrating your reading list into Moodle, see the Reading List Help pages on our website.

If you have any problems, please email libread@essex.ac.uk.

Is it possible to get help?

Yes!

You can e-mail any questions to libread@essex.ac.uk. We can even arrange a 1-2-1 session with you or a group session for you and other colleagues in your department.

If you would like online guidance, we have information available on our reading list help pages.

I'd like to integrate my list with my Moodle course. How do I do this?

You can find details on integrating your reading list with Moodle on the Reading List Help pages on our website.

If you have any questions about this, please email libread@essex.ac.uk.

How do I make the Library aware of any changes I have made to my reading list list?

After making any changes to your reading list, you need to publish it. This not only makes the changes visible to students, but also sends the list to the library for review, making us aware of changes you have made. 

We can then make sure that we have the necessary resources, including purchasing e-books where possible. As part of this review we will also let you know whether there will be any issues with resourcing the items on the list (if the book is out of print, or there is no ebook available, for example).
