Edyta Krol from the University of West London presented the session “Can online reading lists achieve meaningful engagement with the academics and students within a digital landscape?” at an event in Warsaw. See her paper and slides in this post.

“Digital Revolution – Today and Tomorrow. Infrastructures, Services, Users” is an international conference on ‘information science in the age of change’ was held at the University of Warsaw Library in May earlier this year. You can find out more about the event here.

The session abstract is as follows:

The University of West London Library implemented the Talis Aspire Reading Lists system to improve the student experience and access to library resources. This case study attempts to evaluate to what extent students and academics are engaging with the system, by exploring the views and perceptions of both Academic Support Librarians and academics from an individual school.

This article concludes that UWL Library has succeeded in the initial process of engaging academics and students, but it is vital now to maintain and develop this engagement. Although qualitative data shows the increased usage of online reading lists, further study could be beneficial to explore students’ perceptions and expectations of online reading lists and investigate the views of academics from other schools.
