Using Link2Lists reading list software
The University of Manchester's reading list management tool, Link2Lists, allows you to manage and update your own reading lists.
Your reading lists can be searched by course code, course name or tutor and they can also be embedded in your Blackboard pages.
You can see if there are any exsiting lists for your courses by searching the reading lists home page.
If there is no list for your course you may wish to create one. Link2Lists is easy to use; you tag resources from Library Search and other external online sources, then create and edit your list by dragging and dropping your saved items into your reading list.
Want to create your own reading lists?
If you would like to get involved and begin creating and modifying your own lists please contact your Academic Engagement Librarian. We will arrange for you to be sent editing rights to Link2Lists, and organise for you to receive the training needed in order to start using the system.
The PDF document below shows some of the steps required to construct your reading list. Please note you cannot begin to use the Link2Lists system until you have received editing permissions. (Please note this document is being updated)
