Simple lists of books with tips for studying, teaching and research

Starting this week the library offers simple lists of books with tips for studying, teaching and research through our RefWorks Shared Area.

Viewing the UU RefWorks Shared Area and importing titles from lists available there into your own RefWorks account is possible for anyone. Just go the the UU RefWorks Shared Area or from within RefWorks click View > RefWorks Shared Area. If you want to you can even subscribe to a feed of new additions to these lists, through RSS.

We are interested to get feedback on this initiative. If you would like to cooperate by adding relevant titles, please let us know by commenting on this message or, preferably, by sending a message to
The Shared Area is a RefWorks webpage for all UU. It is available for publishing reading lists simply by ticking the option when sharing a RefWorks folder. However to keep the page manageable this option is only available if you have been granted permission. Anyone willing to use this space for their own lists can send a request to the UU RefWorks administrator via stating the RefWorks username and topic of the list.
