Creating a reading list with persistent URLs

How do I create a reading list (with links to full text) in NYU Classes?

You need to generate persistent URLs for the articles & ebooks you want to include in the reading list, then you need to paste the persistent URLs into NYU Classes. (Why persistent URLs?)

Where in NYU Classes can I paste the persistent URLs?

Anywhere you choose, but a suggested method is to create a Reading List subfolder within the Resources folder of NYU Classes. Here's how:

  1. Log in to your NYU Classes page.
  2. Click on the Resources link on the left menu bar. (show me)
  3. Next to the top level folder icon, use the Add dropdown menu. Choose Create Folder and name it Reading List. (show me)
  4. Next to the Reading List folder icon, use the Add dropdown menu. Choose Add Web Links (URLs). (show me)
  5. Insert the persistent URL (see instructions below). Give the article a brief name. In the description field, you can put the correctly formatted full citation. (show me)
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 above for each article you want to put in the Reading List folder.

Another Option: Course E-Reserves

An alternative to embedding links in NYU Classes is to use the Library Linking service to create course reserves.

Students access course reserves via the Bobcat Course Reserves tab.
