Student Reading Lists Made Easy

How To Engage With Your Reading List

Reading Lists Online link you through to your reading list items whether they are books in the Library, e-books, journal articles or websites.

Students can access reading lists via VLEs such as Sulis or Moodle, view all the readings for their courses in one place, create their own collections of useful material and comment and collaborate with other students.

If your tutor is using this system, you can access your reading lists through the VLE. Reading Lists Online is integrated with Sulis and Moodle.
