It is still the exam period, but we are already receiving requests to set up reading lists for the new academic year. Existing lists will just ‘roll forward’ and an exact copy will be made for 2015-16: your editing rights to the list will remain unchanged so you can continue editing as always. The old 2014-15 reading list will archive.
To set up a new reading list for a new module, email us or use the online form as usual (for fuller details see the ‘Getting started’ guide on our webpages). If you are taking over an existing module this summer, then we can give you editing access to an existing reading list. This only involves us sending you an email!
Can I import references?
We have had queries on whether it is possible to import references from bibliographic management software, such as EndNote, RefWorks, Zotero etc. Some academics already have a library of citations they would like to import into a new module reading list, to save re-typing or bookmarking each resource.
In short, you are able to import and export citations with ReadingLists@UCL, using RIS files which are generally compatible with bibliographic management software. We have written a starter guide on this which we will shortly add to our webpages; in the interim we always welcome the opportunity to visit you or speak on the ‘phone to help!
