Creating Reading Lists in Blackboard Using Curriculum Builder

Search and Add Readings

You will now see your reading lists link added to the Course Documents page.  Click on that link to get started searching for and adding readings.  This search will give you results from the library's collections including e-books, streaming media, articles, and books from the library catalog.  There are many options for limiting your search results.  Each result has an Add to Reading List button.  Click the button to collect readings that you can organize into different lists/folders later.

Try using the limits on the left hand side.  Source type is particularly useful.  Publisher and content provider can give you a sense of the vast array of publications in your results.  These options are illustrated in the following two screen shots.
