Reading Lists

We’ve listened to your feedback…

The Library is moving to a new reading list system over the summer. We are doing this to make it easier for you to create and manage your lists. The new system enables academics to easily bring together resources to help their students succeed. Key features include:

  • The option to create the list yourself or ask the Library to upload it for you.
  • Sections which allow lists to be structured by week or theme.
  • Tools to create links to a wide variety of resources – print, electronic or audio-visual.
  • An intuitive way to request digitised chapters and articles.
  • Accurate usage data to check student engagement.
  • The ability to invite students to contribute to reading list development.

Our aim at Salford is to make our students unstoppable, and our new reading list system enables just that.

What do you need to do?

The Library will migrate all the content on your reading lists for you. If you want to keep your bookmarks, please get in touch with us:

You can continue to update your lists as usual until the end of July.

The Library will be providing support to academic staff on how to use the new system in September, and it will be available for students via Blackboard from the start of the new academic year.
