Why is my online reading list blank?

We are aiming to get a reading list for every single module within the university, but as you can imagine this a large challenge. If your list is blank send a message on the 'Feedback' button at derby.rl.talis.com and we will let you know when your list becomes available


When I click on an eBook button it takes me to a signing in page

Sometimes this happens if you have not allowed the page to fully load and the software has not had time to authenticate you. Wait until the page loads and you should go straight to your eBook.

You can only log in to look at ebooks and e-resources at the University of Derby if you have a UDo user name and password
