Reviewing reading lists with draft changes
When reviewing a published list with unpublished changes it would be helpful if there could be some indication of which items are unpublished additions. Otherwise you can have something on the review list which you can't find on the published version, which can get confusing for reviewers.
The notification could say something similar to a list with unpublished changes e.g. 'this item is an unpublished change on a draft version of the list"
We think this is an interesting idea and will be of benefit to others so will raise this for consideration for the next Reviews work that we do.

We would like to echo the previous comment.
As we have had more academics interacting with the lists, we have found that in Reviews each draft list is included within the student numbers.
For example, an academic can created separate draft lists for a specific module, so this means that there are multiple instances of this list in Reviews. As you can imagine this causes quite a bit of confusion for our Collections Team when determining student numbers for ordering.
From the perspective of academics, there are cases where they are not 100% sure which text they want to add to a list but will use the draft as a holding area while other items on the list are reviewed and ordered as necessary.
With the above in mind, we like the opportunity to disable the appearance of draft lists in Reviews.

When we look at the reviews queue we would find it helpful for us to be able to tell which of the lists in the reviews queue are published and which are in draft, without having to go into each one to find this out.
