Since September 2018, BGU has been introducing a new online reading list system called My Reading. Reading lists for most modules / programmes will be transferred into the new system by September 2020. Reading lists for the following programmes / modules are ALREADY LIVE:
All of the above can be accessed via the My Reading link in Blackboard or by typing in a module code at https://bishopg.rl.talis.com. The above list will be updated as and when lists are transferred to the new online system.
If you are on a programme / module which has NOT yet been transferred into the new system please refer to the My Reading area of Blackboard for Word/PDF copies of your reading lists, as made available by your tutors.
The above lists contain a variety of different resources including books, articles, journals, weblinks, scanned chapters and audio-visual materials. Each item on a list is given one of five 'importance tags': essential, core, recommended, further or set text. Importance tags are designed to show how important an item is in comparison to other items on the list, and what sort of library access you should expect. To see a definition of each importance tag click here.
Reading lists are compiled by your tutors to supplement what you learn in class, build up your knowledge, and develop subject expertise. They usually contain a mixture of books, articles, websites and other materials and can vary in length. Most lists are categorised by importance: essential reading, core reading, recommended reading and further reading.
Not sure what the information on your reading lists means? Take a look at our quick guide below.
