Resource Lists: guidance for staff

Resource Lists during the COVID-19 crisis

As we start to reopen our Library spaces, we are once more able to scan chapters and articles for resource lists from print.  However, please be aware that requests may take longer to fulfil than usual due to the limited number of staff onsite.

You can continue to provide your own PDF copy of an article/chapter for use in Resource Lists at this time. Place your request as normal (see support guide 4, Requesting scans), and use the 'Choose file' button in the Request digitisation form to upload your scan. Library staff will verify and reformat the scan as required before uploading it to your list. 

Please email with any queries.

Resource Lists is a service provided by the Library which allows you to create and maintain accessible online resource lists for your students.

  • You can also request scans of chapters/excerpts from books and articles from journals, to be hosted in the list.
  • Lists can be shared with your students in Blackboard, or via a direct link from other webpages.
  • The Library will purchase one copy of any title on a list that is not currently held in stock.

The support guides on the right and the tutorial below show you how to create your list, add resources to it, request scans, and share it with your students. 

Your subject librarian can also provide advice and support on how best to use Resource Lists for your unit.


If you require additional advice or support in creating and editing your list, please contact your subject librarian.

For more information about requesting scans, please contact the Library's Content Procurement team at
