Online Reading Lists enable academic staff to create interactive, online reading lists that link directly to online materials and provide information about finding printed materials in the Library. The system is a direct response to students' requests for better access to Library resources.
If you're a first time user, visit our Get Started page for an introductory guide to Online Reading Lists. You can also email Lib.Reading@uea.ac.uk if you have any questions about Online Reading Lists or need any help.
We strongly recommend using the Google Chrome web browser when working with Talis reading lists. Please be aware that Internet Explorer 11 or earlier is no longer supported.
The Talis Online Reading Lists site will be getting updated user and editing interfaces on Monday 16th September 2019. These updated interfaces improve the student experience, and also make editing reading lists quicker and simpler for academic staff.
Our updated user interface page gives an overview of the benefits of the updated interface, a quick guide to naviagting it, and answers some frequently asked questions. For a more detailed guide, please see our helpsheet introducing the updated List View and List Edit interfaces.
If you don’t want to start straight way with the improved, easier to use editing tools you can still quickly access the classic list editing interface you are familiar with. To access the classic Edit List functions, go to the Edit menu in your reading list and chose the Edit list (classic) option
If you've got any questions or want to know more, please contact us at Lib.Reading@uea.ac.uk.

All online reading lists will be rolled over and be available for editing for the 2019/20 academic year on Wednesday 8th May 2019. These lists will contain all the content already present on the 2018/19 lists, so you will only need to add new readings.
Academic colleagues are asked to have Reading Lists for Semester 1 and Year long modules published on the Talis Aspire system by Sunday 14th July 2019. This is to allow the library sufficient time to order new books and eBooks in time for the start of teaching. We will still accept reading lists published via the system all the way through to the start of the semester and beyond, but priority will be given on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
Find out more about the 2019/20 reading lists rollover, including a quick guide to updating your lists, on our Rollover page.
One to one appointments in your office or the Library are available and training sessions can be arranged for individuals, pairs, or groups at a time convenient to you.
Please email Lib.Reading@uea.ac.uk to organise a training session.
