Reading Lists – Challenge or Opportunity? [Event Ref. No. TG5/READ]


4:00 pm

Event Type

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 at this cpd25 event. Speakers from a number of institutions will be discussing the issues and explaining how they have dealt with them.

Software suppliers from some of the major reading list products will also be attending.
