Access reading lists for the modules you are studying.

My Reading

Module reading lists are available via a system called My Reading.  Access them via Blackboard (look for the My Reading button on each module site) or click on the logo below and search by module code. If you can't find a particular list you  contact your Subject Librarian.

Link to the My reading system

Benefits of My Reading include direct links to online content and the library catalogue (WorldCat); features such as filtering, searching and exporting lists; and being able to set your own reading intentions.  We have produced two short videos about the My Reading system, accessible from our How-To Guides and Videos page:

  • An Introductory Tour (approx. 3 mins)
  • A Comprehensive Tour (approx. 6 mins; includes the introductory content + additional features)

NB. My Reading runs on the current and last preceding versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge.

What is a reading list?

Each module has its own reading list: a list of resources compiled by your tutors designed to supplement what you learn in class, help you develop subject knowledge and expertise, and assist with assignment research.  Lists usually contain a mixture of books, articles, websites and other materials and vary in length according to the subject.   

Each item on a reading list is given an importance tag (essential reading, core reading, recommended reading, further reading or set text) indicating the relative importance of each item and the level of library access you might expect.
