Reading Lists can be accessed from your vUWS site at the unit level via the 'Reading and Resource' menu option, or library search box by performing a unit number search. Once you select the relevant reading list, you will be directed to a list of readings for the unit.
Many items will be ebooks which can be accessed a variety of ways. To utilise the best functionality of ebooks, please review the guide.
Similarly, some items are only accessible from the library and are referred to as Reserve Items.
Note: Reading Lists requires that the user's browser be set to accept third-party cookies. If the browser is not set up to accept these cookies, then a white screen with an 'Illegal institution' message appears.
This setting is in different places in different web browsers but will generally appear under Options / Settings > Privacy. Make sure to set 'Accept third-party cookies' to 'Always'.
Your collection can be a starting point to gather together material you may wish to use to build your reading list/s.
