Readings are now managed by teaching staff within the module in Blackboard called “Reading List”. Academics can add and remove relevant readings, either from our collection or links from the Internet. Readings are no longer available on the Library Catalogue.
The physical items can only be borrowed from the High Use Collection on a short-term basis and the electronic items are available 24 hours a day through the Reading List System (RLS) found in the Blackboard site.
Items previously on High Use Collection held on the library catalogue have been migrated to the Reading List module.
A set of comprehensive instructions on using the Reading List Module can be found on our Library Guide.
Alternatively we have a condensed version of instructions in our tip sheets:
CORE READINGS need to be approved by your School's Associate Dean before they can be made available to students, this might take a few days. These are mandatory texts and will be published in the Handbook.
REQUIRED and OPTIONAL readings can be made available immediately.
You can contact the Reading List team if you require more assistance email@example.com
