-Reading list systems give the user a '​course/​module'​ (or even week by week or the course) view on library resources. They highlight recommended (or essential) reading to students.

-Getting academics to use the '​library'​ reading list system has often proved challenging and it is not uncommon to find that the library manages much of the process around reading lists. For a library manager point of view links to the acquisition process will be helpful (e.g. suggestions of what to buy, or where more copies are needed and usage statistics). The reading list will typically be closely linked (e.g. embedded) in the institutions learning environment/​VLE. '​Reading List systems as described above were a peculiarity of the UK academic library scene for some time.They are unlike (US centric) '​Course Reserve'​ modules of a typical US ILS (LMS).

-The last five years have seen a sizable increase in the number of universities in the UK, Australia and New Zealand deploying library centric reading lists solutions. A notable change in the last year or so is that library resource list solutions are beginning to be adopted in the US. The paper suggests that reading/​resource list systems will have a major impact on the global library technology market just as library ‘discovery services’ did over a decade ago. The paper analyses the impact of reading list solutions on students, academics/​faculty,​ the library and the library supply chain. It looks to future developments including the more extensive use of analytics and the increasing role of reading lists in pedagogical ‘scaffolding’.\\+The last five years have seen a sizable increase in the number of universities in the UK, Australia and New Zealand deploying library centric reading lists solutions.
