The Library has introduced a new, streamlined Reading List Support Service in an effort to improve students' access to high demand material.
Academic staff are asked to please submit details of readings they will be recommending to students in Semester 2 as soon as possible, so that we can ensure we have sufficient copies in stock and at the right loan status.
You don't need to worry about placing orders for these books or deciding loan status - we'll do all that work for you. Just please send us your reading lists and we'll do the rest!
Please submit reading lists with Module Code and expected class size to email@example.com.
