Welcome to the guide for the university's reading list system, MyReadingLists.
How can My Reading Lists help?
Using My Reading Lists allows you to create an easy-to-use and accessible reading list for your students, allowing them to click straight through to material that we hold electronically. Submitting your list to the library for review ensures that we are able to acquire the material that your students will need to read for their success.
Requesting a new reading list
If there is currently no reading list for your module then you can request one by completing the form found below, and one of the team will set it up for you.
Reading lists for the academic year 2020/2021
In order to support the fully flexible teaching model for 20/21, Libraries and Collections are having to reprioritise how reading lists are approached. In normal circumstances we purchase a mixture of e-books and print, as well as core and recommended material.
However, this year we are doing our best to buy as much core material electronically as possible, which means we won't be purchasing recommended material or any print books. We may also have to apply limits to the number of core items we can buy for each module.
In addition, due to the complexities of academic book publishing, some books will not be available, and it will be necessary for academics to look for alternatives, primarily from within our world-class collections, but also with scope for new material to be bought and to make chapter scans within the limits of copyright allowances.
A more complete set of guidelines can be found in the Guides and Materials for Developing Your Reading List section of our KEATS page. Please find the link in the Training and Guidance box above.
