Reading list material for semester one – reminder

Following on from my email of 1 July, which we received a very good response to, please could any remaining reading lists for semester one be sent to as soon as possible with the following information:

  • Title of course
  • Details of the items needed (as much information as possible is helpful, e.g., author, title, ISBN, publisher, year, edition)
  • Number of expected students
  • If an item is a key or core text
  • Item(s) to be placed on the 3 hour loan system
  • If an eBook is preferred (if available)

Items on reading lists can also be requested using the request form which is accessed from the link on the “Suggest a book” page (please note that the form may need to be opened in a new window depending on the browser used). Please select ‘yes’ from the drop down menu at the first question ‘Is this book on a reading list?’.

To request items to support student’s wider reading for research, dissertations, theses, projects etc please again use the request form link on the “Suggest a book” page and select ‘no’ from the drop down menu at the first question ‘Is this book on a reading list?’. These items are automatically forwarded to your Library Representative for approval and will not be purchased until he or she has approved them.

We will try to ensure that books requested now are ready for the start of semester, or as close as possible, but please bear in mind that we may experience delays in receiving material from our suppliers.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
