Engaging academic staff with reading lists at the University of Worcester

Following the implementation of Talis Aspire online reading lists, the library at the University of Worcester encouraged academic staff to consider the reading list as a learning tool. In this post, we highlight a journal article that explores this project.

Allie Taylor, who wrote the journal article said: “The University of Worcester began using Talis Aspire in 2014, and it quickly became a key part of our acquisitions and stock management processes. It soon became clear that sustaining uptake and usage of the system would need the involvement of academic staff. This article looks at one of the ways in which academics were encouraged to engage with Aspire as a tool for teaching and as a way to encourage students to read.”

The journal article provides an in-depth look at how library staff worked with academics at the University of Worcester to help them make the most of the tools and resources available to them.

Allie spoke at Talis Insight Europe 2017 about what academics and librarians could do to help students make the most of their reading. You can watch her engaging session here.
