An extra quarter of a million pounds for reading list resources

by Hannah Groom on 2019-01-04T14:54:00+00:00 | Comments


We’re investing an extra £250,000 to improve access to essential reading list resources this term.

This will help us make sure that all of our online reading lists are up to date and increase the number of ebooks and online resources available for all of our courses.

Our online reading lists give you access to everything you need to know about your courses' key texts in one place. You can read relevant ebooks, digitised chapters of reading material, and online journal articles. You can also see live availability of books, so you’ll be able to find out when our most popular material is back on the shelf. You can find your reading list online or take a look on Moodle.

We’ve been working with all of our academic departments to make sure that our reading lists are ready for the start of the spring term and to ensure all the resources you need for your modules are there when you need them.

This follows feedback from last year's National Student Survey (NSS) and the Library Advisory Group (LAG), as well as ongoing work with the Students’ Union as part of their Big 5.

We're always keen to work with students to ensure all of our resources are easily accessible, so if you have any questions or concerns about access to your essential readings,  please contact libline@essex.ac.uk, with the details of the resource and the relevant module code.
