Create a reading list:

  1. Select My Lists from the top left-hand-side of the screen.
  2. Select Create new list from the top right-hand side of the screen. You will be directed to a new screen where you can start creating your reading list.
  3. Under List name, type in the module code followed by the module name. Example: TR001234: Art and Humanities Studies. You can add a Description for your reading list. Please note: If your module is not listed, it can be added by contacting your Subject Librarian.
  4. Click on Hierarchy. This will bring up the page Hierarchy & Students. The hierarchy links your reading list to your module. This is required in order to make your reading list(s) discoverable to your students.
  5. Search for your module code or name. A keyword search will produce a list from which you can select your module.
  6. Select the appropriate module(s). Your module(s) will be linked to your newly created reading list. You can add multiple hierarchies or remove existing ones.
  7. Select the academic Year.
  8. Click Create list.
  9. A Search for list owner window will appear - choose the I am list owner option. Your name will now appear below the reading list.

 

Alternatively, you can link to the Hierarchy after creating a reading list:

  1. Select your reading list and click on Edit.
  2. Select Link to hierarchy from the dropdown menu. This allows you to search for your module and link your reading list to the hierarchy.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Go to My Lists and you will now see that module to which the reading list is linked, under the Linked to heading in the table.
  5. Click on the Module code displayed under Linked to.
  6. Use the module URL to promote reading lists to students. It will follow the structure:

https://tcdlibrary.rl.talis.com/modules/[module code].html

      Please note:

  • The module URL is case sensitive.
  • Using the module URL allows students to see all reading lists linked to a module and it will persist.
  • The reading list URL will change each year and will break over time.
