New course reserves application: Library Reading List 

Beginning this Fall semester, the library will be using a new application to prepare and support course reading lists. The Library Reading List application streamlines access to a wide variety of course-related and library materials for students and instructors through close integration with Quercus and U of T library resources. 

Syllabus Service staff will use Library Reading List to organize library resources within an easy-to-use course reading list that is integrated with Quercus. The application combines electronic articles, streaming media, digitized content, physical materials, and more into a single list so that students can access all their course materials in one place. 

Library Reading List is part of the University of Toronto Libraries’ migration to the new Library Services Platform that improves access to our wide variety of collections for users. It is a modernized system that allows instructors to follow along with up to the minute information and additions to the reading list. 

Please submit your reading lists at any time – our staff will do their best to assist you. Email your syllabus with full citations or any questions about Library Reading List to
