Reading Lists

What is a reading list?

A reading list is a collection of reading materials either necessary or helpful to your module.

Here at Essex, we use the reading list platform Talis Aspire. On your lists you'll find what you need to read each week, along with suggestions from your tutors about further reading to help you get the most out of your modules.

The best part? They're all available online, wherever you are, with easy access to online resources! 

Creating a profile

Talis will create a profile for you automatically the first time you access the website. 

Some reading lists will ask you to log in to your profile to view them. This is because they have been set to private by the tutor that created them. 

If this is the case, simply log in by selecting the Log in button at the top of the page.
