Brand new Reading Lists

We have a brand new Reading Lists system that we've introduced over the summer.

You can access your lists via your VLE module pages. If you have any questions about how to use the new system, see our FAQs for students.

Book your Key Texts to guarantee the items you need

KeysYou might have seen that some of your essential reading is in the Library's Key Texts Collections, where books are on a shorter loan to keep them coming and going more quickly.

What you might not know is that you can place a booking in advance on a Key Texts item to guarantee that it's available in the Library when you need it.

Watch our video to find out more about Key Texts and to learn how to place a booking.

Key databases
