Reading lists at Hull support: Ask the Library to create your list

Support for teachers who need to create and edit module reading lists

The Library can help by :

  • setting up your reading list template for you to add resources to;
  • adding resources to your list;
  • creating templates for programme-level lists so that teaching colleagues can collaborate on new courses;
  • creating and/or populating lists for courses that do not have a SITS code, such as credit-bearing short courses, staff development events, and KE activities.

Please help the team to help you by giving them as much notice as possible when requesting any reading list support. Note that module lists for the current or imminent trimester will be prioritized.

Ask the Library to

...create a programme-level list template

The Library will purchase items added to these lists to help the development process. Alternatively, requests for new books, eBooks, AV items to support programme development can be submitted via the book order form in the Support portal.

To request a programme-level list template, please email with:

  • programme name and code
  • the names of staff who need editing permissions

Please note that the Library will not add resources to these lists except to update links once ordered items are received.

If new subscriptions, such as journals and research databases, are needed to support a new or revised programme, please complete a New resources request form.

...create or populate a list for a course that does not have a SITS code

In the first instance, email outlining the purpose of the list, the number of resources it will potentially include, and when it is needed, and we will get in touch.

Please bear in mind that our priority is to support reading lists for taught modules, and that we may not always be able to support the University's wider activities.
