Reading Lists: How do I add to my list?

Getting set up and started

Top Tip

always remember to  to Reading Lists before finding your module. If you don't you won't see your draft lists.

What's the difference between a draft list and a published list?

List means the reading list is published and visible to the students 

Draft List means that this list is being edited. Students cannot see draft lists. Draft lists must be published to be seen by students.

You can have a published list which is viewable and a draft list (a work in progress) simultaneously on the same reading list. Once you publish the draft list, there will only be one updated published list.

Module is the just the module details from MyDundee. This means linking reading list to MyDundee module is possible.

Choosing duration of module

It's really important to make sure the timeframe of your reading list covers the duration of the module. There are various options.

Go to:


Remember to make sure the time period allows time for resits and resubmissions of student work.

Bookmarking: It's really quick and easy

You can bookmark books,ebooks, journal article, websites, youtube, podcasts...anything really! 

1. Find the resource you want to add to the reading list

2. Then click 

3. The screen is 'scraped' over to the reading list software

4. Check details are correct. 

5. Then  

create saves this resource into your own bookmarking list whereas

create & add to list can directly add to a specific section in a chosen reading list e.g.


6. Click OK. Item will appear in your reading list and in your bookmarks (for create and add to list) or in your own bookmarks (for create) which can be added to reading lists as required.

Using create to save resources is a really useful option if you come across a great paper but you're not sure what reading list/or section of a reading list to use it in yet. It can be easily dragged and dropped into the correct location later on.
