The library has now completed the rollover process for Talis and lists are ready to be updated for 2018/19. The instructions below are for colleagues at our Colchester and Loughton campuses. If you are teaching at our Southend campus then please speak to the library in Southend about your reading list.

What do I need to do?

You need to review the list of modules that you will be teaching next year and make any changes that are needed for 2018/19. Once you are happy with the list, you need to publish the list, which will send it to the library for review. You may need to create a list if a list does not already exist. Let us know if you would like help with setting this up.

Can I get help with using Talis? 

The library are on hand to offer support with using Talis. Our Moodle page goes through the steps of creating a reading list on Talis. We also offer 1-to-1 support, drop-in sessions, and can organise group training sessions as well. Just email libread@essex.ac.uk and we can sort out something that works for you.

When do I need to do this by?

The timetable below sets out the process for updating reading lists ready for the academic year. This is set out in the library’s Content Development and Management Policy:

Changes in Talis

We have changed the levels of importance to ‘Essential’ and ‘Further’ to make it clearer to students as to what they need to read. We have also made it so that when you publish your list it will get sent to the library for review so you will no longer need to request this separately.
