We recommend naming your reading list consistently with the name of the subject according to Charles Sturt's Subject Handbook. This will mean that the list is clearly titled and consistent for the students.
Single subjects = 'subject code - description'.
i.e. EEB427 - Leading Early Childhood.
Paired subjects with the same subject description = 'subject code/subject code - description'.
i.e. ASC413/ASC513 - Equine Disease Prevention.
If the descriptions of paired subjects differ, use the naming convention above to determine a reasonable alternative list title.
Does your subject have a prescribed, recommended or highly recommended textbook? If a prescribed text section does not already exist at the top of your reading list, create a 'New Section' for the subject textbooks at the top of the reading list so that students can easily locate them. Use Primo Search to locate each resource and add it to the section. See, Use Primo Search.
Our eBook collection provides free access to textbooks for your students. By adding the e-textbook to your Readings and Resources list, students can refer to it throughout session and you can gather some data about the students' usage of the resource.
To ensure students know how to get the most out of their e-textbook for their studies, add the following text as a public note to eBook or eBook chapters throughout a list.
Add all teaching and support staff as managing collaborators of the reading list. This might include academic staff teaching other cohorts, or teaching/learning support staff. Managing collaborators will be able to add, edit and delete resources as required; and will aid the process of reusing the reading list in future sessions. See, Add collaborators & Reuse an existing list.
One of the benefits of using Leganto, is that reading lists can be reused each session, so they only need to be created once.
Do not delete the list at the end of session. This will delete the list for all users and cannot be restored by Library staff. The eReserve team regularly archives lists that are no longer being used. If the Library archives a list, it can often be restored if required.
If you no longer need to be a collaborator of a list, use the Manage collaborators option to remove yourself from the list.
