“The reading lists provided are all extremely useful and link well to the units. Most of the reading is also available online so it saves you going to the library which is very convenient.”
You want to spend your time learning, not searching, and so we have worked closely with your lecturers to offer online reading lists for more than 70% of units, an increase of approximately 14% since last year. You told us last year that while library resources were good, you sometimes found it difficult to get all the books you needed to read. Rolling out online reading lists allows us both to take you straight to what your lecturers recommend from a single click and make sure we have enough of the books you want. We also provide electronic copies you can read anywhere over the internet, even after the last printed book has been borrowed. We have also made it possible for you to request books, and scanned copies of book chapters and journal articles from other libraries simply by completing a short online form.
