naming convention Course or Module
In our set up, Reading Lists will be for a Module. When a Digitisation Request is made the form has a tab for "Course details". This actually requires the module details (to us a Course is a degree programme, consisting of a numbe rof modules). Librarians here, agree that this is going to be very confusing for our academics. Can the term "course" be changed to "module" or can this be customised?
After reviewing we are declining this idea as course does cover all terminology for all universities. We have found each universities refers to modules, units etc differently so leaving as course prevents confusion.
This is also common terminology in RRO’s when it comes to reporting.
Being able to customise the name of this field is essential for us - we need the wording to say 'Unit'. A great of work at Manchester Met Uni is based around the 'unit'. Course means something entirely differently. This is going to be very confusing for our academics too!
