Module reading lists

Using reading lists is a quick and easy way to find your reading material. The software is called Talis Aspire and is used by a large number of universities.

For further information on using reading lists, please take a look at this useful guide.

You can access the homepage of Talis Aspire here.

There is a useful video guide here.

How does the Library decide what books to buy?

The Librarian checks reading lists to determine which books will be purchased.  We will always seek to stock copies of the Core reading on your lists.  If an eBook version of a title exists, these will also be available for you to use.  If your lecturer is recommending a book which is not on our shelves, please speak to a member of the Library team.  We can borrow it from another university partner library or purchase a copy for you to borrow.
