UTS Library

Reading Lists has launched

Reading lists are used by teaching staff across UTS to deliver required and recommended subject resources to students.

As part of an improved digital experience (including a soon-to-launch new Library website), UTS Library has implemented a new list management system, called Reading Lists. Replacing the UTS Digital Resources Register (DRR), the new system simplifies list management, as well as digitisation and Reserve Collection requests.

Teaching staff and others who use reading lists can get started creating their lists from today - read on to learn more.

Reading Lists will allow teaching staff to:

  • create, manage and access all of their reading lists in one place
  • create dynamic lists gathered from the Library collection, internet, and multimedia resources
  • structure each list to suit their preferred material delivery
  • easily manage and update resources, create templates/re-using lists
  • automate digitisation requests, orders, and place required items into Reserve
  • be copyright compliant with the Library checking each list on submission
  • view analytics on resources and student engagement

For students, Reading Lists provides one place to access to their required and recommended readings, both online and physical formats.

  • Reading lists are accessible directly via Canvas and UTS Online.
  • Students will be able to ‘like’ resources and create personal collections.
