Reading lists @RMIT

This guide is designed to provide support and information when creating a reading list.

Why reading lists

Reading lists are an interactive and collaborative way of managing course readings.
Instructors/teachers can:

  • create ​​structured, annotated reading lists
  • generate analytics and reports to gain insight into the materials that students use
  • keep lists up to date, from year to year in an easy manner

Students can:

  • collaborate and share views, feedback, and questions with classmates and instructors
  • discover new materials from peers' suggestions and automated content recommendations
  • gather resources into a personal repository directly from discovery systems, scholarly sources, publishers’ sites, online bookstores and other websites
