Students - help us make sure your readings are available!

Students - we need your help. We want to make your life easier by ensuring that your reading list material is available to you, but we need your help!

So that we can make sure that all the books and journals that you are being asked to read are in the Library, we need to know what you are being asked to read. Many lecturers send their reading lists to the Library, but believe it or not, many don't.

So, we are asking students to bring their reading lists to us, so that we can take a copy and then check to be sure that we have everything you will need and source it if we don't.

From January 17th to 28th, there will be a Reading List Desk in the foyer of the Library Monday to Friday 10.00 til 17.00. Please bring us your reading lists so we can take a copy - it'll take only two minutes of your time, and will help us make sure that all your readings are available for you when you need them.
