Reading Lists: Guide for Academic Staff

Reusing Lists

You can reuse the same list for a new study period, and avoid recreating your list each time. 


The Library will complete a "rollover" process for you (usually after the exam period for the University academic calendar), and once this process is complete you will find your list in Blackboard for your new course code. 
E.g. If you created a Reading List and used it for F-NURS5000-24S1-SP1, after that semester is over, you will find the same list has been moved into F-NURS5000-24S2-SP2. 

All that is required of you is the following:

  1. Check your list and make any changes that are required (e.g. removing citations or adding new ones)
  2. Publish your list, so that the Library can process any items that need completing, and so it is visible to your students. 
You can use the same list across multiple courses if the content of the Reading List is exactly the same.  


  1. Open the Reading List you are planning to use across multiple courses.
  2. Click on the [...] menu 
  3. Select Manage course association

You can see which course the list is currently associated with, and you have the option to look up and add a course.

  1. Search by course code (or title).
  2. Click the correct course from the drop down
  3. Select Associate & Close.
