The Resource Lists rollover is now complete and lists for courses running in 2020/21 are published.
Resource Lists (both Published and in Draft) have been copied from 2019/20 and from previous years – so if you had a list for a course in 2017/18 or 2018/19 that didn’t run last year, it should have been copied for use in 2020/21.
Last year’s Resource Lists will shortly become read only. Please edit the 2020/21 version of your list for next academic year.
Find your 2020/21 list and check you can edit the list.
You should now be able to review and edit your 2020/21 list by going to the Resource List homepage http://resourcelists.ed.ac.uk and checking under ‘Lists’. Remember to sign in to view your lists.
If your Resource List is not there as expected, you can search for it using the course code or title. The 2020/21 list may be available but you may not have editing permissions.
Course organisers have been copied from 2019/20 (or previous years), if you’re the List owner you may wish to review who has editing rights to the new list.
If you can’t see your 2020/21 list, are unable to edit your list or spot anything unexpected, please contact Library.Learning@ed.ac.uk and we’ll take a look.
If you use a permalink to link to your Resource List this will need to be updated to point to the 2020/21 version of the list.
There’s a blog post providing more detail on the rollover checks above along with information on managing list editors and permalinks: Resource Lists for 2020/21 available for review and editing.
Resource Lists for Semester 1 2020/21
Please take the time to review your Resource Lists for Sem1 2020/21. They have made some changes to the Resource Lists service and to how the Library will manage the provision of Library materials for teaching in response to Covid-19 which are summarised in this updated guide: Managing your course reading. This guide also provides help on how to add new resources to a list, ask the library to check for e-book availability and request digitisations. Other guide and short videos are available to help you review and set up Resource Lists for the new academic year.
