What is Course Reading Lists and Why Use It?

Course Reading Lists is a tool that enables you to easily create, maintain, evaluate, and share reading lists used by your courses. Reading lists can be added to Brightspace D2L or Canvas courses, or you can get a link to your list that can be added to your syllabus.

You can assemble materials of all types into your reading list -- physical books, ebooks, journal and newspaper articles, websites, and streaming media. You can build this list by yourself or collaborate with your subject librarian.

Why use Course Reading Lists?

  • Save students money by using items already owned or licensed by the Library;
  • Save students time with an easy to use one-stop shop for articles, books, websites, magazines, newspapers, videos, and more;
  • Track student engagement with usage statistics on the items in your reading lists;
  • All efforts are made by library staff to make readings accessible to screen readers with optical character recognition (OCR)
  • Easily reuse and revise course reading lists each semester;
  • Comply with copyright guidelines, with the Library paying copyright fees if needed.
