In preparation for Semester II 21/22, we request that all module owners inform the Library of the reading list requirements for their modules as soon as possible to allow sufficient time for the ordering of resources.  More detail is provided here. Please note it may not always be possible to obtain e-book versions, in which case you will be offered the option of digitising a portion of the print book or we will support you in identifying suitable alternatives.

The Library's reading list support service integrates:

  • Reading Lists
  • Blackboard (with integrated off campus access to resources)
  • Library database and fulltext resources
  • Library acquisition of e-books / print books & chapter scanning
