Course Readings

Course Readings is a NUS Libraries service that provides course-related materials made available, either electronically or physically.

Create reading list

You need to create a list before you can add readings. 
These are 2 ways to create a list.

 

Note: While it is possible to create more than 1 reading list for each course, only 1 reading list per course can be published at a time and therefore be visible to students.

Reuse an existing reading list from previous semester

Readings for the past academic year have been or are in the process of being migrated from LumiNUS to Canvas' Course Readings.

Follow the below steps to reuse readings that have already been migrated to Course Readings or that exist within a single reading list on Course Readings.

 

1. Click on New List.

2. Set the Duration for the list to be accessible.
Note: This duration (i.e. the start and end dates) cannot be changed once you have created the reading list. Hence, if you intend for the reading list be visible to students at a different date range compared to the date range shown under Predefined duration, please select Custom and indicate you preferred start and end date and reading list name.

3. As you are attempting to re-use a previous reading list, choose a Course code and Reading List from the drop-down menus.

4. Choose the readings.

5. Click on Next, followed by Create.

6. After your reading list has been created, you may see an orange copyright declaration banner.  Follow the steps shown in the image below to declare copyright.

Notes:

  • Upon creating a list through reusing a existing list, it is still possible for you to add more readings to the reading list.
  • Regardless of whether you are adding or not adding more readings, please look out for each reading's status (e.g. Declaration required) to see if there is any follow-up action required of you. This is because each reading's status can affect its accessibility to students.
