  • Save any changes.
  • Click on Add tags to item to indicate whether this is Essential, Recommended or Background reading. You will need to do this for each item, so students understand how important the item is, as well as the Library making arrangements for a specific number of copies to be available.
    Note: If the book is not already available as an e-book and you want the chapter scanned to ease access for your students, then tag it with Requires CLA Scanning. If permitted under the CLA HE licence, this request will be actioned by the Reading Lists Team.
  • To add more items, click on the refresh icon and then continue.
