Reading lists - your key to preparing for a lecture

Your lecturer has asked you to do a whole lot of reading before your first lecture, but how do you find those articles or books? Introducing your library reading list… By Catherine Hocking

Luckily the job of searching for these readings has already been done for you to produce your library reading list.

Your reading list is compiled by your lecturer and can provide a great place to start when beginning a new unit. Over the course of a unit you may be asked to refer to articles, textbooks and other materials. For most units the Library has put all these materials together for your convenience so you can get reading now!

Your Library reading list will link you to
  • ebook versions or electronic journal articles wherever available
  • scanned copies of articles and book chapters,
  • recommended websites, or
  • the Library catalogue record for books allowing you to see immediately whether a copy is available.
There are a number of ways you can access your reading lists – from the quick links on the library homepage, or by entering your unit code into the Library’s Search.
You may even find a link to your reading list through your unit’s Moodle site. Or go straight to
Once you have found the reading you need, simply click the title to see library availability for books or a web address to link you to the full text chapter or article.
