Resource lists are online interactive reading lists which provide live links to Library OneSearch and a real-time view of book availability. This then makes it straightforward for your students to keep up with core and recommended reading, and ensures that the library purchases any items required. The system also links to eBooks, online journal articles and other web-based learning materials, and you can use it to request digitised articles or books chapters for your students.
Nottingham Trent University's Resource List Management Software (RLMS) makes it easy for you to design clear and accurate resource lists for your modules, and make them available to your students through your NOW module learning rooms.
By adding resources to your lists, you let the library know what is required to support your module. Our first priority is to ensure that all essential texts included in the list is acquired if available. By default, every effort will be made to obtain a suitable electronic copy of resource list items with appropriate licencing and delivery arrangements. Where it is not possible to provide an appropriate electronic copy of a item, multiple print copies will be purchased according to a formula based on the number of students on the module.
If you need help with your resource list, your Learning and Teaching Librarian can provide one-to-one guidance, and we offer workshops and training sessions. We also provide guides on how to create resource lists and good practice guidelines, which you can find in NOW Central:
