Reading Lists Project



The University of Kent launched a new reading list system, powered by Talis Aspire, to Canterbury students on Wednesday 11 January 2012.

Students can access the system from within their Moodle modules, the Library website, and the Student Portal, and follow links straight from their reading lists to the Library catalogue and full-text e-resources.

Academic staff can create and edit their own lists within the system, and lead the selection and purchase of Library stock by adding resources to their lists and sending them for review.

Integration with the Library catalogue and Moodle allows users to preview items, check their availability in the Library, view links to items in Blackwells and links to related content. In addition, the system allows for the collection of usage statistics to inform decisions about stock purchases.
