Online Reading Lists

Many of your SOL units will have an online reading list.

Look for the eye icon on your unit pages.


Using your list

Your list may contain recommended textbooks along with other sources such as digital chapters, journal articles, websites and more. 

Some lists will be very long and you will need to select a few items that are of interest, others have core reading, or separate weekly readings.  Check with your lecturer if you are unclear about what is required.

Click on the item's title for more information (such as how many printed copies are available) or use the view online option for electronic access:

You may also see online items with digitised material notes - these are chapters or articles that have been made available electronically specifically for your reading list.

 Make sure you follow the access instructions for all your reading list items. 
Most electronic materials require your University email and password.
