MyReadingList is the Library’s online reading list service providing students with direct access to reading lists via their module pages in Loop. MyReadingList links directly to all library resources, print and online (journal articles, book chapters etc).

Let us set up your online reading list(s) for you!

The Library team will create your online module reading list(s) for the academic year 2023/2024.
All you have to do is send your reading list to and include the following information:

  • Instructor name(s) and school
  • Module name and code
  • Number of students taking the module
  • Indicate which items are essential or supplementary reading

If there are items on your reading list(s) that we don’t have, we’ll order them.
You don’t have to send us a final version either.
Once we set up your online reading list, it will be easy to add/remove material as needed.
