After you've created a Resource List with your name, you are ready to add some items into the list. You can add items straight from OneSearch within your list. This includes both books and journal articles. If you know what you want is available in the Library catalogue, then this is the easiest option to use.
Step 1: Add items into your reading list
A. To add items from OneSearch, follow the steps below:
Click on the + icon in the top-right corner of a list section.
Enter the title or some keywords into the search field and click the Search button.
Drag and drop your desired item(s) from the result list to your newly created Reading List.
Resource List also enables you to add a range of other resources, including web links. You can embed links, for example, to Youtube videos, newspaper articles and Google books. You can use the Cite It! Bookmark button to quickly add blog posts, video, newspaper articles and almost anything available on the supported websites to your reading lists.
B. (1) To add the Cite It! bookmark button, follow the steps below:
Open the User Menu and click Cite It!.
Drag & drop the Cite It! button into your bookmarks bar of the browser.
* A list of Supported Websites is available for you to check which one supports the Cite It! feature.
Step 2: Inform library staff to put your selected items on reserve
Each item on your Resource List should have a tag to indicate whether it is on the Reference List or the Textbook List. For the print book that is tagged as Textbook List, it will be relocated from Book Collection to Reserve Collection for hourly (24 or 60) or 7-day loan.
Follow the steps below to add a tag for each item on your list:
Click on Add tags to item under the title of each item.
Hit the Add tags field and select the appropriate tag from the drop down menu.
Resource List is an easy to use platform provided by the Library that lets instructors and students access course resources prescribed by the Instructors directly from Learn@PolyU. This platform allows Instructors and Librarians to collaborate and manage suggested readings and other resources in Resource List to support students’ learning. In addition, the usage data of each item in the Resource List can be viewed by Instructors and Librarian to analyse the access of the reference materials for planning the reading list items and modify their teaching plan.
The default reading list for courses in Learn@PolyU is the list of readings found in the course programme document listed in the PolyU Course Programmes Database. Instructors are welcome to create additional reading lists using the Resource List platform and share it with students who are taking the same course.
After you've added the items into your Resource List, you may add the tags to each item. For the books to be put on reserve, please select Textbook List from the tags field pull down list. After you've added a tag for each item on your reading list, click on SEND LIST to inform the library staff. We will proceed to put the corresponding books on reserve if we see the tags. Please refer to the Add items to the Resource List tab from the Quick Guide above.
The Resource List tab is not showing because your course in Learn@PolyU was created with an old template. ITS has prepared a step-by-step guide to solve this problem without having to recreate your course in Learn@PolyU. Please contact your Faculty Librarian to get further assistance.
We encourage you to send us (firstname.lastname@example.org) the PDF file of your reading list, the library staff will help add to Resource List and link to your corresponding course. After that, you can remove the one in Learn@PolyU.
