If you would prefer to create or update your list yourself, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set you up with editing rights on the system.
We provide one-to-one and group training to support anyone editing. Contact us at email@example.com or via your Subject Librarian to arrange a session. We are very happy to arrange refresher sessions, too, or to assist with specific queries.
The tutorials on this page provide step-by-step guides to using the system. These can be worked through in your own time.
If you have been editing lists for some time, you may notice some changes, as the interface has recently been updated. There is now no need to select edit mode ("Classic List Edit") to edit your lists; you can edit directly on the list itself. This should be quicker and easier for you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for support in using the new interface.
Reading lists on the Library’s online reading list system will be rolled over to the academic year 2021/22 on 18 June. During rollover, identical copies of current reading lists will be created for 2021/22, which can then be updated. Please publish any changes to your current lists by 17 June and do not edit online lists during rollover period of 18 – 20 June. Full details on Goldmine.
If you are editing an online list directly on the reading list system for Autumn 2021, please remember to publish your changes so your students can view them and send the list to the library for review by the end of July 2021 to allow sufficient time for essential resources to be purchased or digitised.
Reading Lists @ Gold requires you to choose between three levels of importance for a resource: Essential, Recommended, or Further Reading:
Marking the importance of your resources:
Particularly if the reading list is a long one, students might not be expected to access every resource. Marking an item as ‘Essential’ will make it clear to the student that they need to engage with this material in order to succeed in class.
