Student guide to reading lists

What are reading lists

Reading lists provide easy access to collections of resources recommended for each module by the academics teaching you.  The lists may contain books, eBooks, journal articles, media items, digitised content and websites relevant to that module.  Any online items will have embedded links to make it easy for you to locate the full text.

Items on a list may be tagged with ‘Essential’, ‘Recommended’ or ‘Further reading’. Any essential or recommended items will be given priority by the library when purchasing copies (usually in e-format if available).


Use the tabs on the left hand navigation bar to find out more about the following:


  • How to find your reading list online
  • Using some of the features of your lists
  • Item details
  • Troubleshooting

If you have any questions about the books, journals and websites contained in your reading list contact your module leader.
