Reading Lists

What is rollover?

At the end of each academic year, reading lists undergo a ‘rollover’ process. Rollover occurs around the Easter vacation, and will be communicated by the library’s reading list team around this time.  

 

As part of the rollover process, reading lists from the previous academic year are copied and the time period updated to match the coming academic year. No changes are made to the content of reading lists. The reading lists from the previous academic year will then be archived after exams have taken place. 

 

Once rolled over, the new reading lists start in ‘draft’ form. This gives module supervisors an opportunity to check and update their reading lists as necessary, ensuring that the content is current and reflects the teaching on the module.
