Course readings lists

It is recommended that course coordinators use readings lists. A reading list gives students one consistent place to access their readings. The university uses Talis to deliver course reading lists and manage copyright compliance.

Your subject Librarian can assist you in identifying online alternatives to physical items and readings in print and help you update your reading lists.

Benefits include:

  • Enhance the student learning experience
  • Integration with Nuku
  • Consistency across courses
  • Online access to library material
  • Structured and annotated reading lists
  • Reuse readings and lists
  • Quickly update readings lists
  • Collaborate and share with other staff

What must go in Talis for copyright compliance?

  • Digitised print book pages and chapters (sentences, paragraphs or sections)
  • Digitised print journal articles (full or partial articles or printed case law)

Links to online material are not required to be in reading lists. The reading will need to be in a reading list if copied for a printed course pack.
