The 2022 ReadingLists@UCL “rollover” process is now complete!
What does this mean?
All 5000+ 21/22 reading lists have been copied, and these copies have been badged as 22/23. The 21/22 versions of all these lists have been archived and are now hidden from view. The result is a seamless transition from 21/22 reading lists to new 22/23 versions of those same lists, ready for the new academic year.
What impact will this have on my reading list?
Your 22/23 list is identical to the 21/22 version as at the rollover date (14th July). So when you search for your list in ReadingLists@UCL everything will be the same as you remember it – with the sole difference being that it’s marked as 22/23 rather than 21/22! You can just continue to make changes to it as normal, and published lists will also be visible to students as normal.
Do my digitised readings also roll forward?
Yes, for the most part these will all roll forward into 22/23 and will continue to function as normal.
The only exception to this is digitised readings where we’ve had to request permission directly from the copyright holder (e.g. the publisher), rather than use our institutional CLA licence. This applies to the very small number of readings that aren’t covered by our CLA licence. The link to these readings may temporarily break as at rollover, and we at TLS need to request fresh permission for the coming year for these. Once we have this we will reinstate those links. This is a routine task that we do over the summer each year, and we will be in touch if your readings are affected.
What if I or my students need access to the 21/22 version of the list?
If you ever need to refer back to your 21/22 list for any reason please let us know. We can recover it from the archive if necessary.
Where can I find further support?
General advice and guidance on reading lists can be found on the ReadingLists@UCL Libguide.
If you have any questions about the rollover process, or have any questions on anything to do with reading lists at UCL, please drop us a line.
We also offer informal in-person sessions (either over Teams or in person), where you can refresh your knowledge of any aspect of ReadingLists@UCL with an expert member of the TLS team. Interested? Send us an email and we’ll arrange a session.
