Reading Lists

What is rollover?

At the end of each academic year, reading lists undergo a ‘rollover’ process. This happens around the Easter vacation, and will be prefaced by communication from the Library’s reading list team.  

 

As part of the rollover process, published lists from the previous academic year are copied into the coming academic year. No changes will be made to the content of reading lists. The reading list from the previous academic year will be archived after exams take place. 

 

When copied over, all reading lists will go into ‘draft’ form. This provides an opportunity for module leaders to update their reading lists as necessary, ensuring that they are current and reflect the teaching on the module.
