Finding Your List
Through Your Module on CampusMoodle
You can access a reading list corresponding to a module straight from the module page on CampusMoodle,
via the Reading List logo and link.
If this doesn't happen, there may not be a reading list - check with your module coordinator to be sure.
If you are on the
reading lists homepage, you can search by module name or module number. If a
list exists, it will appear in the results list.
Being signed in means you will be able to bypass the
individual log-in process when you access electronic resources!
If you accessed the reading list through CampusMoodle, you will already be logged in. If not, click on Guest,
then Log In. Use your RGU username and password, and you can search for your module's reading list.
Your main reading list will include some core information about each item
on the list such as title, author, date, and item type. It will also indicate if the item
is available online or is a print item held in the library.
You may see additional information provided by your lecturer, telling you if the item is
essential, recommended, optional or suggested for purchase, and notes that give you information about the list.
Click the item's title to find out more information about it. You will see links to the item
(if online) or details about library availability (if a print book). You'll have to be logged in to see the latter.
The list may have different sections. You can toggle this view and open the
relevant section to see the items listed.
