Resource list rollover is complete

Information for staff

Rollover of Resource Lists (Talis Aspire) is complete. We have copied your 2021/22 lists so you have new lists for 2022/23. You should only amend, edit or add to 2022/23 lists from now on, in preparation for the next academic year.


We can bulk-publish lists for the course or modules you teach on. Please email us with the module codes and we’ll take care of the publishing. You will still be able to edit and add new items after lists have been published, but please do not change any existing ‘recommended for student purchase’ or ‘essential’ texts. 


What do I need to do now?

Between now and 1 August 2022

  • Log in to Resource Lists and search for your draft lists. 
  • Add your 2022/23 module lists to My Lists. We recommend removing your 2021/22 lists from My Lists when the current academic year is complete.
  • Edit your 2022/23 list and make any needed changes. 
  • Request Review so we can order your required books. 
  • Publish to make the list visible to students, or ask Library Services to publish lists for the course/modules you teach on by emailing module codes to your liaison librarian or 

Please edit and publish your Semester 1 lists by 1 August so we can order new items for the library.

Teaching new or different modules? 

  • If you need to change the named owner of the list and are unsure how to do this your Academic Liaison Librarian can help. 
  • If the module lead for 2022/23 is not known at the end of this academic year, the outgoing module tutor or course leader should take responsibility for publishing the rolled over Resource List. The incoming tutor should not change the ‘Recommended for student purchase’ text or remove ‘Essential Reading’. They can add ‘Essential’ and ‘Further Reading’ and otherwise shape the list structure to suit their teaching. 
  • Teaching a brand new module with no list on the system? You’ll need to create one. Not sure how? These quick video tutorials will help. 


Updating your Module Guide and Blackboard 

  • The online resource list should be the only list for your module. Update URLs in your module guides or handbooks. The URL should follow the format where ABCD1234 is your module code 
  • The newly published Resource List can be linked in the 2022/23 Blackboard module once available. You can also add weekly reading or themed sections of your list to the relevant week in Blackboard.
