Get More From…Your Moodle Reading Lists is a Library Services campaign taking place between Monday 7th and Friday 11th November. The aim is to highlight to students the benefits of using their Moodle Reading lists, as well as some of the additional features such as the ability to add notes and set reading intentions. The campaign focusses on the following five reasons to use Moodle Reading Lists.
- Saves time
Your Moodle reading lists provide quick access to a wide range of resources so you can spend more time on your readings.
- Easy access to the information you need
Moodle reading lists gather links to online resources in one location, and provide real-time information about print book availability.
- Personalise your reading lists
You can add your own notes and record your reading intentions and progress. Lists can be sorted and downloaded too!
- Quality information
Further improve your learning experience with access to good quality relevant information.
- Recommended reading just for you

Library staff will be on hand daily between 11am and 2pm at both Crewe and All Saints Library to talk to staff and students about their online readings lists.
To coincide with the campaign, Library Services will be unveiling which reading lists are currently most popular. Keep an eye on @MMULibrary for the big reveal!
Feedback about online reading lists has been very positive with some students commenting they are easy to access, easy to use and comprehensive. Library staff continue to offer academic staff training in how to manage their own online reading lists using Talis Aspire, the university’s online reading list system. Monthly workshop training sessions take place throughout the Autumn term and there is also an option to train yourself using short online video tutorials.
