Reading Lists

Setting up your reading lists

SETS finalist

Send the Library your reading lists and they’ll do the rest...

The Library will:

  • ensure resources are easily accessible in print or online
  • link to digitised chapters, ebooks, journal articles and the library catalogue
  • add any notes as required
  • put references into the correct HARVARD format (or APA/OSCOLA as required)
  • create weekly or general lists – whatever you need
  • load into your SOL unit
  • update as needed


  • Lists accepted in all formats - emails/word docs/weekly outlines/general readings
  • Please include the unit title/code
