Reading lists

Reading is an important part of the learning process and underlies many of the courses provided by the University. Reading lists form an essential part of this, allowing academics to guide students to relevant material to support their studies. We use an online system called LORLS to manage reading lists.

This system was developed locally and has been made available as open source. The system provides students with up-to-date reading lists and checks availablity of material against the Library catalogue. It also allows academics to maintain their own reading lists without having to separately inform the Library of any changes.
