Finding your reading list online

Every year, tutors of taught modules are asked to inform the Library what reading they will be recommending to students. This helps to ensure we stock copies of all materials that directly support taught courses, make additional provision of 'essential' reading, and to produce a 'clickable' copy of your reading lists online.

This digital copy lists all the books the lecturers and tutors on your module have either suggested or directed you to consult. Each title links directly to the respective record on the catalogue so you can check provision and availability of each book without having to enter the title details in manually. In some cases a few individual chapters and articles will be listed, with links directly to the full text. This is usually restricted to key materials only. For practical and legal reasons it is rare for all articles and chapters to appear in the online list. Chapters can be found in the respective books, articles can usually be found either by entering their titles into Discover or by entering the journal title into the catalogue and navigating to the relevant year then individual issue. Please ask your department's Liaison Librarian if you have any difficulty finding your course materials.

To access your online reading list, simply click on ‘My Reading list’ from the 'hot links' on the Library's homepage and search for your course title or module code, or go directly to

Library Resources Button in DUO

The module's reading list should be available via the 'Library Resources' button in DUO.

Your lecturer should also make your reading list available in DUO, accessible via the Library Resources button. This version should look clearer than the ones on the Library's web site.
