The Online Reading Lists project will deliver a solution to enable students to access their reading lists – linked to full-text resources and catalogue availability data – in an accessible, digital environment. The solution, now known as Oxford Reading Lists Online (ORLO), has been integrated with the library management system, the new Canvas VLE, and Oxford Single Sign-On authentication (SSO).
Following successful testing with, and training of, academics and library staff, ORLO is now being used by the project’s early adopters, drawn from all divisions and departments. The system is currently populated with over 150 reading lists which are being used by students on early adopter courses.
Early adopters will be engaged in assessment and evaluation to help determine what adjustments to the service are required or desirable. The solution will be completed by March 2019, and a detailed plan for a wider rollout across the University will be delivered by the project team.
