Course Reading List Tool

The Virtual Library Experience


The Vanderbilt Libraries’ Readings and Resources in Brightspace is designed to help instructors incorporate library materials in their Brightspace courses. Instructors can use the tool to build reading lists that include books and articles owned by the library, videos, web resources, and more.


  • Instructors search the library catalog and link directly to resources; no need to deal with off-campus access or link maintenance
  • Course materials can be saved and reused in other courses or future semesters
  • Course materials lists are added to Brightspace course navigation so that students have easy access

This page contains instructions to help you get started, or you can check out some video tutorials. For individualized help with choosing resources, contact your subject librarian.
