Timings for requesting teaching resources

ResourceLists@Bham is the University’s reading list system. To ensure the materials for your module are available to your students, please use Resource Lists to trigger automatic ordering of course texts for the library.

To get started, see our help page.

Timings for triggering automatic ordering

To trigger automatic checking and ordering of e-versions of items on your list, please ensure you have added book importances and included student numbers. Please see guidance on Canvas. Then click request review to trigger a library check of your list.


Your lists will be reviewed and we have the best chance of delivering your resources for the beginning of the Semester.

Semester 1: June to July

Semester 2: November 


Your lists will be reviewed but please note, this is our peak ordering period. Your lists will join a queue and delivery times may be longer.

Semester 1: August to September

Semester 2: December to January


Your lists will be reviewed but they will join a queue. It is unlikely that new or extra resources will be available until later in the Semester.

Semester 1: October

Semester 2: February
