Library Reading List Builder: Overview



The Library Reading List Builder is a tool that allows instructors to create lists of library resources in Blackboard. Lists can contain links to digital library resources (such as journal articles, eBooks, or streamed videos), or any web content. Students can then easily access these resources from within the course on Blackboard.
