Online Reading Lists & Copyright Cleared Content Libguide
The Content and Discovery Team can help and advise you on what to add to your Online Reading List
We have been helping academics develop their Online Reading Lists since 2011, and have been copyright clearing and digitising chapters and article requests for almost 20 years. Copyright Cleared content sits in your Online Reading Lists allowing both academics and students with the ease of viewing all of the teaching materials in one place. All scans have been created using software that allows them to be read out loud using specialist software

University of Derby
"When students arrive at university, it’s easy to see how they could become overwhelmed with the sheer volume of texts they feel obligated to read. If students are provided with a clear and concise resource list that they can use as a roadmap for their study, they are better able to plan and manage their workload which can help reduce stress and really support their learning"
Becky Owen (2019) Blog: The Benefits of a Good Resource List (https://cla.co.uk/blog/higher-education/benefits-resource-list)
"Encouraging college students to read is a long game, so keep at it. Reading is one of the best ways to help students improve their understanding of themselves and of the world"
Andy McHugh (2019) Blog: Encouraging College Students to Read (https://cla.co.uk/blog/further-education/college-student-reading)
"Students engagement with recommended academic resources is key to developing a deeper understanding of their discipline and, ultimately, a more satisfying and stimulating educational environment"

"Research has shown that there is a direct link between degree classifications and library usage"
Eileen Hiller, Head of Academic Services, University of Huddersfield (The Guardian, 2013)
"The introduction of the electronic reading lists has enhanced the students' ease of access to current module book lists, allowed for updating by staff and provides a real professional academic feel"
Colin Beeke, Senior Lecturer in Computing, University of West London (Talis webinar, February 2016)
"Students regularly asked... about items on their learning resources lists and staff direct them to the Talis reading list. Students are often surprised and pleased to discover that the list is available with links to electronic resources and digitisations"
The University of Queensland (Talis webinar, February 2016)
"It more than met my expectations. I went from having two confusing lists where one was linked to internet sources and the other was linked to the library, to having one cohesive list that was divided into weeks and clearly showed the students what they needed to read each week in preparation for their classes"
Deakin University (Talis webinar, February 2016)
