  1. 1. Reading lists<br />Sarah Roughley & David Clay<br />NOWAL Exchange of Experience, <br />University of Manchester,<br />28th February 2011<br />
  2. 2. Motivations<br />
  3. 3. Reading lists weren’t assumed to be a problem outside the library but …..<br />
  4. 4. “Nothing kills student interest in reading lists as readily as the unavailability or insufficient availability of apparently key items”<br />
  5. 5. “the university should work with the library to ensure there are sufficient number of books on subjects set in assignments”<br />
  6. 6. “…..…… nearly a third of students began their search using Blackboard VLE.”<br />
  7. 7. Pilot Project<br />Four academic departments – History, Mathematical Sciences, Sociology and Social Policy, and the BVSc programme in Veterinary Sciences<br />Three library assistants from our Academic Liaison team were each allocated a subject.<br />Contacted every module leader to ask for a reading list, sending reminders where we didn’t get a response first time around<br />
  8. 8. Recorded information on response rates, time taken to process etc<br />
  9. 9. Mathematical Sciences – 51% <br />History – 47%<br />Sociology – 60% <br />Veterinary Science – 57%<br />Response rates<br />
  10. 10. So far, we have received 130 reading lists from the four departments<br />Of these, 70% of the recommended books were either not stocked by the library at all or there were not sufficient copies for student numbers.<br />
  11. 11. We start with the library catalogue<br />A 978 field is added to the bibliographic record of each item on a reading list<br />
  12. 12. A brief record is created for journal articles including an Open URL link to the electronic version<br />
  13. 13. Search for reading lists by module leader or code in the catalogue<br />LMS exports reading lists via RSS<br />
  14. 14. RSS feeds are in embedded in subject Libguides ….<br />but can also be embedded in web pages<br />
  15. 15. And added to Blackboard with a single click via a new add on developed by our computing staff<br />
  16. 16. Using the LMS also allows us to generate usage statistics for items on the reading lists<br />
  17. 17. Very long reading lists<br />Problems with RSS feeds updating and lack of native support for RSS in Blackboard<br />Academic staff can’t update reading lists<br />Time taken to create journal article records in the catalogue<br />Issues<br />
  18. 18. The future<br />Expand to more academic departments<br />Improve the response rate<br />Improve the look of reading lists in Blackboard<br />Simplifying journal article record creation<br />Make reading lists more accessible<br />Our system(s) vs alternatives<br />
