Reading Lists @ Liverpool for students

Reading Lists @ Liverpool makes it easy to access the material your lecturers are recommending.

E-books: 'VIEW ONLINE' takes you straight to the e-book.

Journal articles: link straight through to the PDF.

Your lecturer can structure the list to match your module, highlight important items as 'Key' and annotate items to tell you how best to use them to support your learning.

Best practice reading lists

In these best practice reading lists, lecturers use:

  • structure to match their teaching style
  • sections to make the lists easy to navigate
  • 'importances': Key, Recommended and Background
  • student notes: e.g. read chapter 1 in advance of the tutorial
  • digitisations: copyright compliant chapters so the whole class can read material online

Our reading lists have had a refresh and they're looking good - clearer and easier to use.
