The majority of reading lists here at Goldsmiths are created by the Reading List Team - if you would like the library to create or update an online reading list for you please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
When sending us your lists please:
Please send us any lists required for Spring term 2020 by 19th of November to allow time for orders to be placed and digitisations processed.
If you would prefer to create or update your list yourself, please contact email@example.com so we can set you up with staff access to the system. On the left hand bar of this page you will find a series of tutorials to demonstrate how to use the system.
We are also happy to provide 1-1 and group training to support to any staff starting out with the system. Browse the tutorial below or contact us or your Subject Librarian for further support.
Selecting an importance for an item can be very useful in guiding the reading of your students, particularly if the reading list is a long one, where students might not be expected to read every item. Marking an item as ‘Essential’ will make it clear to the student that this item must be read in order to succeed in class.
ReadingLists@Gold allows you to set three levels of importance on a reading: Essential, recommended, or further reading. It is vital to mark the item importance on your reading list for two reasons:
Essential (Usually around 20-30 items per list you expect students to consult)
Recommended (20-30 items per list you would encourage students to consult)
Further (readings you would suggest for deepening understanding)
For items identified as Further reading that are not already part of the Library collection, the departmental subject librarian will make a decision on whether to purchase them. Their decision will consider cost, whether they are available at Senate House Library, and availability through Interlibrary loan.
