New Year Resolution: Must sort out Reading Lists!

Alison Rooney

Forget dieting, getting fit and promising not to drink too much, New year resolutions need to be realistic! Sorting out your reading lists is something that you can achieve and one that will deliver real benefits to your university, students, academics and library.

Presenting your reading lists to students and academics in a modern, structured, integrated and interactive way must be one of the most cost effective, tried and tested ways of delivering value right across the university. Few other systems or initiatives have the power to address:

  • Student experience
  • Student satisfaction (e.g. NSS question 16 for the UK)
  • Digital campus strategies
  • Integration – reading lists where you need them, e.g. the VLE or Learning Management System
  • Effective resourcing – making sure the library has the right resources
  • Discoverability – eg. direct links to e-content
  • Library workflow efficiencies

Did you know that Talis Aspire Reading Lists had over 148 million student hits during 2014/15? That is almost double the previous year, demonstrating the increasing value students are placing on these tools.

Talis Aspire Reading Lists are now adopted at 85 universities globally, including 68 (and counting) in the UK  and since launching in 2009 enjoy a 100% renewal rate by adopting a partner approach to delivering great services.
