Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Online Reading Lists and Aspire?

  • You may have heard of your online reading lists being referred to as 'Aspire lists'. This is the name of the software that is being used and generally we prefer to call them Online Reading Lists as we feel it is easier for students to remember

What do I do if I am having problems logging in?

  • If you cannot log into your Online Reading Lists account using your UDo identity contact IT Services on x1234 to check that it is still valid
  • For any other issues with your Online Reading Lists account please contact the Content and Discovery Team (details on the left sidebar)

What information is available to students?


Which link should I put in my module handbook so students can get to their list?

  • Add this link: https://derby.rl.talis.com/modules/5DU500.html - but replace '5DU500' with your module code. You will have a different code for each module but the link will work every year. Please contact the Content and Discovery Team if you need help with this
