  • Enter the module code and select the matching module that appears with a blue background.
  • Select save.

  • Use the drop down arrow to select the blank option for the Semester field.
  • Choosing the blank semester ensures that the module does not go through the annual reading list copy process.

  • Enter the anticipated student numbers (this will help us to determine the number of copies to purchase).
  • When the fields have been completed select Create list.
  • Once the list is created you need to make it available in Blackboard ( How do I do that? )
