Module leads are responsible for creating and maintaining resource lists in Canvas. Creating a resource list will improve the efficiency with which the library acquires recommended reading material so that students have easy access to the resources they need.

How to create a resource list in Canvas

You can start creating your resource list using the template available in Canvas. The following standard terminology should be used:

Resource List – rather than reading list

Recommended – refers to resources that are essential reading

Supplementary – refers to resources that are optional

Other Learning Resources – eg links to videos, relevant websites etc. 

Resources should be listed using the St George’s, University of London’s Harvard referencing style based on Cite them Right (Pears and Shield, 2019).

Adding links to resources directly from Canvas is a great way to encourage students to engage with the materials. You can create links to resources in Hunter by following the instructions in this guide (PDF).

Please contact your liaison librarian if you would like help identifying relevant material for your resource list. 

See an example of a module resource list  in Canvas.
What happens next?

Once you have created or updated your resource list, please let the library know by emailing us.

Library staff will then check the list against library holdings to ensure that there are sufficient numbers of print copies and that journal articles are available online.

Please note that it can take up to six weeks from the time a book is ordered to the time it arrives on library shelves, so please allow for this time frame.

For more information and additional support, please email the library
