This is an early reminder to refresh your existing Aspire lists and create any new lists needed for the coming academic year.
The deadline for modules taught in
Semester 1 (or taught over both semesters) is: July 31st (a month
later than last year)
The deadline for distance
learning modules is: June 30th
FYI the Semester 2 deadline
remains at November 30th.
Remember: you must add a note for library saying “Please
digitise” for any chapter or article that needs digitising, even if has been
digitised in the past, or they will not be digitised for 2016-2017. Then re-publish your Aspire list.
New: if your Aspire list
has not been (re)published at any time in the 52 weeks prior to the deadline,
any digitisations for that list will not be processed for 2016-2017.
New: if your module does not need a reading list e.g.
a placement year, you can indicate this in Astra. This will ensure it is not counted when Information Services
collates statistics about departmental usage of Aspire.
New: How to manage an Aspire list if the module code is changing
If you have created a draft list
in Aspire and you can’t link it to the hierarchy, or you would like some Aspire
training or a refresher, or you have a question about this blog: please contact
