MyReadingList

The library is piloting a new online reading list service during Semester Two, 2022/2023. This new service, which we’ve called MyReadingList will enable teaching staff to easily create and maintain online module reading lists in Loop. It will provide students with direct access to reading list material via their module pages. MyReadingList links directly to all library resources, print and online.
