After setting up your profile, you can begin creating a new reading list.
Once you've completed this, you'll have a blank reading list ready to add your sections, paragraphs and resources.
A sample reading list showing how a list can be structured is available here: Sample list (remember to log in to see its full functionality).
If you prefer, you can create an unstructured list i.e. without any sections or paragraphs - see Adding resources below.
You can structure your list using sections. Sections might take the form of Week 1, Week 2 etc., You can also create sections within a section (infinitely!).
Clicking the section options icon (three red vertical dots icon to the right of the section title) will allow you to move or delete your section. If your list or section is quite large, you can use the 'Cut' and 'Paste' option to move it faster.
To move a section:
Note: Ensure you select a blank area or the top of an existing section to paste in. If you paste below an existing section, the whole section will be pasted inside that section. If that happens, just cut and paste again into the correct location.
Paragraphs might give direction on readings or other instructions and can be placed anywhere in your list (under sections or resources).
To move a paragraph:
Clicking the paragraph options icon (three red vertical dots icon to the right of the paragraph title) will allow you to edit, delete, cut or paste your paragraph.
Once you have structured your list (or not), you can start adding resources.
When searching resources, you'll see items under the 'Book Search' heading. These are suggested items from other sources and may not be held by Murdoch University Library.
To move a resource:
Clicking the resource options icon (three red vertical dots icon to the right of the resource title) will allow you to edit, cut, paste or delete your resource. You can also request digitisation of the item, add a note about the item for students or Library staff.
Once a bookmark is in a list, you can set it to either Essential or Recommended.
You can also add notes for students or the Library on a bookmark.
You can set the number of expected students that will access your reading list. Adding this information now will make it easier when requesting digitisations.
Changing the list owner
You can only have one list owner per list, but multiple people can edit the list. You can invite others to edit your list by choosing 'Invite list publishers' from the 'Edit' menu.
Once you've arranged and organised your list, its now ready for publishing.
Remember to publish your list so that students can see the most recent changes.
If you have printed material in your list that need digitisation, you'll need to submit a request.
