Using Talis Aspire to create online reading lists

Setting up your account and creating a profile

Creating a profile will allow:

  • your students to search for all lists created by you
  • you to access all the lists you have created under the My Lists tab, without having to search for them individually
How to set up your account
  1. Contact your Academic Liaison Librarian. Your Liaison Librarian will be able to send an invitation from within the online Reading Lists system, which you should receive by email. (You may need to check your spam folders if the invitation does not arrive within 24 hours.)
  2. Click the invitation link. The link in your email will direct you to the online Reading Lists system, where you can log in and accept an invitiation.
  3. Create your profile. Now go to 'My Profile' and 'Create a Profile' to enter your details.
