Resource Lists

Resource Lists are online reading lists. Resource Lists provide students with easy access to key reading materials including e-books and copyright-compliant digitisations. Course organisers can request library resources via Resource Lists.

Update: 9 May 2022


On 6 June the Library will copy Resource Lists used in 2021/22 and create a new version for 2022/23. If you are a Course Organiser and want to start working on a Resource List for next academic year before 6 June, please contact and we’ll set you up with a new version of your list to edit before the rollover is complete.

Resource List deadlines 2022/23

  • Semester 1: Monday 4 July 2022
  • Semester 2: Monday 24 October 2022

Course organisers should send their lists to the Library by the deadlines above to give the Library sufficient time to ensure access to key teaching materials in time for the start of each semester.

What are Resource Lists?

Resource lists logo
The Resource Lists service uses Leganto to provide online reading lists for students and help Course Organisers manage the provision of materials for teaching.

Resource Lists: Help and guides

Help and support using Resource Lists. Includes short guides and videos for staff and students. You can also arrange a call (via Microsoft Teams) if you would like some extra help or have a specific query.

Information for Students

Resource Lists provide quick and easy access to a wide range of course resources so you can spend more time on your course reading.

Resource Lists Framework

The Resource Lists Framework states that Resource Lists are the preferred route to manage library materials for teaching, summarises the service you can expect from the Library and outlines good practice.

Accessibility statement for University of Edinburgh Resource Lists

We want as many staff and students to be able to use the Resource Lists service as possible. The Accessibility Statement provides information on how Leganto can be customised to improve accessibility. The Accessibility Statement also describes known issues and outlines what we're doing to address these. There is also information on who to contact if you would like a Resource List in an alternative format.
