  3. 3. Why adopt? • University-wide shift – change inevitable • Avoid duplication of labour – old approach to reading lists • Integrated with library catalogue and VLE • Host for PDF scans produced through Copyright Licensing Agreement (CLA) • Distance learning
  4. 4. The benefits • Convergence of information and teaching systems – streamline student experience • CLA scans don’t have to be managed and migrated separately – had been an annual summer task • No more separate annual reading list updates
  5. 5. The benefits • Now that it’s all there, can just adjust it year on year – work is frontloaded • Library can keep track of what students are accessing and borrowing, adjust buying accordingly
  6. 6. The drawbacks • Possibly reduces opportunities for students to practice catalogue searching • CLA scans still time consuming because library doesn’t yet do the scanning • Considerable time commitment to set everything up • Editing mechanism in ResourceLists fiddly – multiple layers
  7. 7. The drawbacks • Library catalogue integration not perfect • Automatically inputted details need editing • Book chapters awkward because they don’t have separate catalogue entries • Ebooks awkward because of discrete (and disparate) entries in catalogue
  8. 8. Going forward • Feeding back to library about integration with catalogue – opportunity to review how entries are formatted, and how ebook acquisition and access works? • Feeding back to Talis about editing layers and book chapter formatting in lists
  9. 9. Going forward • Monitoring student progress and research capability • Enlisting help of PG assistant to help with setting up further lists and CLA scanning
