Introduction

The Reading List service is a web-based system which provides 24/7 access to course readings through direct links to articles, ebooks, databases, websites, the library catalogue and digitised readings in one convenient list. There are a few initial setup activities outlined in this guide and only need to be undertaken once. For more information including policies related to the service see the Reading List Overview.
