  13. 13. “At first I didn’t see the point of this system. Now I wish we’d got it years ago. I wouldn’t want to be without it.” Dr Laszlo Pazmany School of Medicine Author of our most popular lists: PBL modules for Medical students. Module 2.07 had 3,574 page views in January 2014.
  14. 14. I went to the workshop on the Library’s excellent Reading Lists @ Liverpool enterprise, a scheme that allows you to construct a reading list via the library site (but which is not limited to the library holdings and allows links to external resources to be added in one place, even letting media clips be inserted) which you can then link to your module VITAL site and by which students can access the catalogue, the resources and their availability as relevant, directly. It’s very impressive and, crucially, easy to use. I’d encourage you all to think about using it and if you need any help getting started I’ll do my best to assist. Dr Rebecca Dixon School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies
  15. 15. Students seemed to react well to it: it’s visually more attractive than other available forms of listing we have used (e.g. within VITAL itself) and directly brings up much more relevant information (such as library stocks). So I would say that student response has been positive so far, though I can’t say that I asked them specifically about this function — it was just there in the background. Prof Mark Collier School of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology
  16. 16. Integration, integration, integration VLE: Blackboard (VITAL) Library Web pages Library catalogue Discovery service (Discover) LibGuides Programme Planner Work is ongoing to make reading lists part of university systems and processes.

  18. 18. A pre-populated system 1,700 lists when Reading Lists @ Liverpool went live 23rd September 2013 63% (?) of modules covered Data imported from library catalogue Lists edited by library staff Much easier to engage academics if some of the work has been done for them
  19. 19. Success Success project kicked off July 2013, running to July 2014 Small team again, but ownership of success is spread out to all Liaison Librarians Another project, another plan … Making Reading Lists @ Liverpool an integral part of the university. … to be continued …
