Resource Lists

Your resource lists show whether your resources are available electronically or in print. Some lists have digitised copies of chapters and articles.  Your lists are usually available before your module starts, which gives you more time for your reading.

We may be able to provide alternative formats of books on your resource lists.  We can supply books in an accessible electronic format to support visually impaired or physically disabled students who may have difficulty using a standard text. Contact the University’s Disability and Dyslexia Service if you need this service. Additionally, subject to eligibility, you can apply for a RNIB Bookshare account, which offers additional access to digital books with helpful features
