Reading list instructions for academics

5. Publishing a list

These instructions explain how to publish a reading list and then share all or part of it.

This includes how to:

  • Publish a new or existing reading list
  • Create a link to a reading list
  • Create a link to a digitisation

Publishing new or existing reading list

While working in a specific Reading List that has just been created or that already exists, a box will appear below the top bar action menu. This box will provide you with two options:

  1. You can select Publish, which will publish the reading list you have just created or make changes to an existing reading list.
  2. Alternatively, you can select Review & Publish. This will send your reading list to the Library for review. Once the review is complete, the Library will inform you of any changes made to the list.


Create a link to a reading list

  1. Launch Reading List platform and navigate to a specific reading list
  2. Highlight and copy the resource address (ie: the link or URL) from the web browser address bar
  3. Paste the link into your chosen document. For example, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, H5P or CloudDeakin HTML page.

Create a link to a digitisation

  1. Locating the record with the digitisation in a Reading List.
  2. Click on the title of the record.
  3. Access the digitisation by clicking the View Online button.
  4. Copy the URL from the web browser.
  5. Share that with your colleagues or students.



As long as the reading list and digitisation are rolled over each trimester the unit occurs, this link will still go to the digitisation. If the record is deleted and then re-added, the rolling over will no longer transfer to the next occurrence of that digitisation.

To can make sure the digitisation becomes available on the reading list and share with you the new URL to the digitisation. Contact with the details of the unit and title of the resource.
