Curriculum Builder

Curriculum Builder allows you to create reading lists in Blackboard so that students can access articles and other library resources pertinent to your courses from ASU library databases. Utilize resources directly from Library databases while remaining copyright compliant, and save your student students money by using alternatives to textbooks or other purchased supplemental readings.  You can share these reading lists with your colleagues teaching the same or similar course.

Set it up

Go to a Content Area, select the Tools dropdown menu, and choose Curriculum Builder Reading List. Title your reading list and begin adding articles, eBooks, videos to your list by searching within U-Search, the Library’s multi database discovery system.

Import & Share

Create your new class’s reading list, access it, and import your previous list data or use public data shared by other ASU faculty.


Contact your instructional designer or eLearning for technical assistance, and Mark Allan in the Library can provide content assistance.
