On this site you will find everything you need to create, edit and publish your online reading lists using Talis Aspire. Before engaging with your list this term please read our reading lists in lockdown page. 

Please take note of our submission dates below, and ensure you plan an adequate amount of time for the editing and reviewing of your list. It is essential that we receive your reading list in good time to ensure availability of items. Our purchasing policy is also available and will impact on how we source items on your list. In the Getting Started tab you will find all the information you need to find and edit your list, including requesting new lists for modules. 

We have rolled out an update to the Talis Aspire interface, so that it is more intuitive than previously, making it easier and quicker to edit lists. In this guide you will find video guides and detailed guidance on how to navigate the new list edit.

It is essential we receive your reading list in good time. The time taken for the Library to acquire new items can vary considerably. Adhering to the submission date allows the Library sufficient time to order and process new items, so they will be available to your students at start of term. It also allows time to check web resource links to ensure they are stable. Please note lists submitted after the dates below may not be reviewed in time for the start of term.
