If you would like the library to create or update an online reading list for you, please submit it as a Word document using our new Reading List Submission Form.
Reading Lists @ Gold is an online system of communicating reading list requirements to students.
The online reading lists link students directly to the resources required for their modules, giving them quicker, easier access to the materials they need. Feedback also indicates that direct access to resources via online reading lists assists students with referencing material for assignments.
The online reading list service:
Submit any lists required for Autumn Term 2023 using our new Reading List Submission Form. Please submit lists as early as possible to allow time for orders to be placed and digitisations to be processed. We receive a large number of Spring lists, so the earlier you can send them in, the better!
The deadline for Autumn Term reading list submissions is Monday, 3rd July 2023, with June/July 2023 the optimum time for submissions.
To ensure we can process submitted lists efficiently:
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.
Please link your list to the VLE, learn.gold, as this enables students to access resources directly via the module page. See our guide on linking lists to the VLE for more details.
