The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the issues surrounding the implementation of an online reading list system at the University of Glamorgan.
The paper reports on an implementation project, using Talis List, which took place between November 2005 and March 2006.
The project itself was a success, with the target number of reading lists made available being exceeded. As with any new system, the development of the processes involved in its day‐to‐day running can be unpredictable. Workflows did not develop as anticipated; the ways in which reading lists were collected from academics varied, as did the styles of the lists themselves. Some issues were encountered around linking to electronic resources and embedding the system into the university's virtual learning environment (VLE).
This paper will be of value to those interested in the development and use of online reading lists.
