Publishing Your List

Reading Lists must be published in order for them appear on your modules on Canvas and for students to be able to search for them in iFind Reading and add them to their Collection

By publishing the List you also send all the items to the Library for processing, in order for citations to be fulfilled by the Library. 
You may also send individual items or sections of your lists to the Library for processing.
