Psychology: Books and e-books

Reading Lists

Most reading lists for Applied Science are on LSBU's Reading Lists Online system.

From here you can search for a module name, a module code, a keyword, or an academic.

You get access to:

  • real-time information about books’ availability on the library catalogue
  • links to our online resources, including e-books and journal articles
  • links to external web pages and embedded multimedia
  • scanned extracts of key readings

A reading list should also be accessible via each of your Moodle module - on the right-hand side.
