Library Guides

Create and manage your online reading list: Publish List

This guide is for academic staff.

Important information

You must publish your list in order to:

  • Alert the Library to purchase new items.
  • Make your list visible to students.

If you make further changes to your reading list, you must republish your list to alert the Library and make the changes visible to your students.

Every year, the Library rolls over the online reading lists to the new time period. Please ensure that you publish all changes to your list before the rollover takes place each year. See the yearly timetable of events in the Reading List Policy for further information

Publish your list

Go to your reading list and click on the Edit list (classic) option from the Edit drop-down list on the right-hand side of the screen. When your list has unpublished changes, there will be a warning message at the top of the list.

Alternative method for publishing your list

An alternative route to publish your reading lists is via the My Lists page. If you manage multiple lists, this is the quickest way to review the status of your lists and publish any changes.
