Q. When do reading lists need to be updated for 2020/2021?


We ask that lists are updated and published by the 1st August. This is to allow us time to process all lists and resource them appropriately, as well as communicating any issues to academic staff.

We will continue to review lists after this point but cannot guarantee that we will have finished the process before the start of term. There will therefore be a risk that resources will not be available to students.

If you have problems with meeting this deadline, please get in touch with us at libread@essex.ac.uk to discuss.

The full timeline is below:

Library archives 2019/20 lists (these lists will be available for resit students via the Talis homepage) 

June 30th

Module leaders ensure that list is updated, published and sent for review 

by 1 August

Library staff review the list, check that links work, request digitisations, order items and advise module leaders of any essential items not available digitally

by beginning of module 

Library staff receive and process digitisations and e-books, and advise module leaders of any potential resourcing problems 

by beginning of module

Academic year begins 

Beginning of October 

The Library will process reading lists received later than the 1 August, but cannot guarantee that there resources will be available to students before the start of term. 

N.B. This is for standard modules only.
