What's it all about then?

The Library’s online reading lists service allows you to create a list of resources for each of your modules which are easily accessible for the students.

You can organise it in such a way that suits your module e.g. by week, by topic or by resource type. Any way that you want.

The lists can run for semesters, calendar year, academic year. 

Each list can have a variety of resources including, books, ebooks, journal articles, websites, youtube videos, podcasts. Anything that you want.

The list links easily with MyDundee.
