'Go to bottom' tab

Ability to 'cut & paste' sections of a reading list into another reading list. I work on multiple programmes where my subject is one of several within a module, each of which has its own, specific reading list associated.

Enable a 'Key Theorist' label to be added to resources that are old but foundational

To enhance how reading lists can support the development of students' information literacy skills (particuarly among first-years), it would be useful if resources could be tagged/labelled as 'Key Theorist'. This would indicate to students that the...

Add a 'Newest Edition' label to Books/Chapters based on metadata
