Feedback has highlighted that some students have experienced difficulty accessing the core texts on their reading lists. Over the past year, Library Services has worked with teaching staff in schools to promote Resource Lists (the University reading list system) which has many benefits to both staff and students, including the digitisation of essential reading chapters, easy access to books, articles and multimedia resources, and integration with Canvas.
We have also made a significant investment in both our print and eBook collections. 191,026 more eBooks were purchased/subscribed over the academic year, increasing the eBook collections by 38%.
We have also systematically replaced older editions of high demand texts with the latest editions, in like for like numbers, to ensure students have access to the most recent resources. More information about ResourceLists@Bham.
