When creating or editing a list we recommend no more than approximately 500 items, though this is not an exact figure as detailed notes and annotations may increase the size of the list.
Larger lists may suffer performance issues so if you have trouble publishing a larger list you may wish to consider splitting it into 2 or more smaller lists based on session, weeks or topics. All of these lists can be attached to the relevant module.
An additional way to add extended explanations or original educational content to lists such as bibliographies, is to use the New Page option when editing a list. It is possible to add rich formatting, links, images and video and allows for text to be cut and pasted onto a list. An abstract of the page will appear on the reading list, and students will be able to click through to see the full content. It is recommended that this is only used for supplemental information and not for key or recommended reading.
