Reading Lists

undefined Your reading list should be the first place you go to look for books. They can be found on your Moodle module sites.  You can search the Reading Lists database here
From here you can access the library catalogue to see if the book is available.  If it is available as an e-book, you can access the online version here too.  undefined


The Library catalogue

If you are searching for a particular book, type in the author's surname and a few words from the title.  Note: the search box will not recognise abbreviations or punctuation.  If you are searching for books around a particular subject, eg. urban regeneration, type these keywords into the search box.

The catalogue record for each title will give you the Class Number of the book, how long you can borrow it for, and whether it is Available (ie. on the shelf).  Use the library map to find the correct floor.  The books are arranged in numerical order. Signs at the end of each bay of books let you know the class number range for that bay.

You can search for e-books in the library catalogue
