How to get what you and your students need

Reading Lists @ Liverpool can support the move to a hybrid teaching model. It allows you to create an accessible list that is easy for your students to navigate.  You can annotate your list with student notes and they can easily access the material you are recommending.

Please see Library materials for teaching and learning (PDF) to find out how the Library can support you to deliver module content successfully and provide the materials your students need to learn effectively, both on and off-campus.

Best practice reading lists

In these best practice reading lists, lecturers use:

  • structure to match their teaching style
  • sections to make the lists easy to navigate
  • 'importances': Key, Recommended and Background
  • student notes: e.g. read chapter 1 in advance of the tutorial
  • digitisations: copyright compliant chapters so the whole class can read material online


New List Edit

New List Edit is a simple and intuitive way to make changes and updates to your reading lists.
