Reading lists are a perennial issue in the academic Library. Resource lists, book lists – what are they in the first place? How do you ascertain what the academics are recommending to their students and what is the process of the Library finding this out?   Is the Library being bypassed by the process? How do you meet the needs of students and staff in the reading list process?  How do the reading lists systems relate to other library and university systems?  These, and a range of issues will be explored in this forthcoming event.  Speakers from a number of institutions will be discussing the issues and explaining how they have dealt with these issues.  Software suppliers from some of the major reading list products will also be attending.
