Reading Lists Step-by-Step GuideReading Lists make it easy for you to find your module reading and resources. You can suggest new items, comment, create your own collection of items or export a reading list in your required citation style.
Find your reading list
Go to your module page in Moodle and follow the link to your reading list.
Alternatively, you can search for lists at
http://readinglists.napier.ac.uk (click on Guest at the top right to log in).
Can’t find a reading list? Not all lecturers are using Reading Lists (the Leganto software for linking to ebooks and ejournals). Ask your lecturer if you are not sure.
Follow a list
Click on Find Lists, search for your chosen reading list by title or code and then select Add.
Add a ‘like’ or comments
Did you particularly like a reading list item? Give it a like to show your lecturer that you enjoyed it! Or if you have comments, you can start a discussion.
When you click on an item in a reading list, you will see a ‘like’ button and comment box at the right.
Mark an item as read
You can use Reading Lists to keep track of what you have and haven’t read.
Click on the tick to the right of an item to mark it as read.
Create your own collection of resources from reading lists or any other online source.
Add items to My Collection
Go to http://readinglists.napier.ac.uk and log in (click on Guest at the top right). Then choose Collection.
To add items to My Collection, add the Cite It! Button to your browser. Make sure your bookmarks bar is visible, click on your initials at the top right of the screen and select Leganto Cite It!
Then drag the Cite It! button to your browser bar.
Add an item to My Collection
Using the same browser, navigate to any ejournal/webpage etc that you would like to add.
Click on the Cite It button, then Add It. You should now be able to see the item in My Collection.
Alternatively, if you start at Collection, you can click Add Items to find items in LibrarySearch.
Then click Add to Collection.
Copy from a reading list to My Collection
You can also copy items from a reading list – click on the three dots next to an item and choose Copy to my collection.
Suggest an item for a reading list
If you are following a reading list and have found an item that you think would be useful, you can suggest it to the module leader.
In Collection, click on the three dots and then Suggest this item.
Export from My Collection
In Collection, select the tick boxes next to the items you would like to export, click on the three dots at the top of the screen, then choose Export. You can choose to export to a number of formats, but if you export to Word, you can also choose the bibliography style.
