This will allow your students to see all the items that are marked as Complete. Your students will not see the items that are marked as Being Prepared until library staff change the status to complete (after scanning, purchasing e-copies, etc.). Any questions can be sent to

As part of this service, Libraries staff will review the items you've added to your list to check for broken links, etc. We will also be reviewing for copyright compliance, if applicable. If we have any questions or issues, we will contact you via email.

Congrats! You have created a Library Reading List!
