If your list is not linked to the correct code(s), then follow the instructions in the print guide to linking your online reading list to the correct module code.

Once your list is correctly linked on, you can log into your Blackboard site. In the left hand menu you should see a link for Reading List. Make the link visible to students so they can access your list.
