Reading lists: a guide for students

Why isn't everything available electronically?

Not every item on your reading list will be available online. 

The library provides access to a vast amount of online information for your studies, including ebooks and journal articles, and wherever possible we will make the resources on your reading list available in electronic format. However, there will be instances when we cannot make a resource available electronically, often this is because the publisher is not making it available in this format, or copyright regulations do not allow us to do this.  

If you need to access a book or journal article that we don’t have available online we will provide a link to the Library website so that you can see up-to-date information on availability and the location of the item.
