Resource lists for tutors

The logo for ResourceLists@Bham

ResourceLists@Bham is the University’s reading list system, making access to resources much easier.  With a resource list for your module, you can:

  • provide easy access to a multitude of resources
  • request digital scans of hardcopy content
  • trigger the library's ordering process for course texts
  • provide clear guidance to your students about the resources they should be engaging with.

To ensure the materials for your module are available to your students, please use ResourceLists to trigger automatic ordering of course texts for the library using the 'request a review' option. See timings for ordering.

If you're a student, see our ResourceLists guide for students.
