Library & Student Services

Libraries and Learning Innovation is committed to supporting academic staff to create diverse reading lists in support of the University’s Access and Participation Plan. We’ve developed a Reading List toolkit to help staff achieve this and would like those who have used it to complete a short survey on its impact.

If you’re unfamiliar with the toolkit, here’s what you need to know –

What is the Reading List Toolkit?

The toolkit is a set of staff guides designed to help academic staff find and add resources to their reading lists which are written by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) authors, or which explore a subject from a BAME perspective. The guides include topics such as: How to search for inclusive content, resources recommended by students, best practice and current research in the field. The aim is to help diversify the curriculum and create vibrant reading lists which reflect the diversity of our student population.

How can I find the Toolkit?

The toolkit can be found on the TeachLearn website.

What are the benefits?

The toolkit is designed to be easy to use and adaptable to the amount of time academic staff have and their requirements. You can read the entire toolkit at once, or dip into individual guides.

How do I complete the survey?

Please follow this link to complete the survey.

The deadline is Sunday 3 January 2021.

The survey results will be used to help us improve and develop the toolkit.

Thank you for your time.
