Find your subject readings and resources

It’s the start of session, and the time has come to get across finding and accessing your subject readings and resources. Here’s our round up of the different ways you can access your readings.

Readings and Resources list

First off, it’s a good idea to check if your subject has a readings and resources list. If it does, it will appear in your subject site. These lists are built specifically for your subject and will contain a large majority of your readings, if not all of them, in one handy location. This single source platform will allow you to access:

  • books (including eBooks)
  • book chapters
  • eReserve readings
  • journal articles
  • web resources, and
  • videos

You’ll find that most lists are arranged by the designated order of reading, (modules, topics or weeks). Check out the Using your Readings and Resources List guide for more information.

Primo Search

Search eReserve

When a text isn’t available online or the physical copy is in high demand, a portion of the book can be digitised and made available to students, in compliance with Copyright law. Typically one chapter, or 10%, of the book is available online.

Search by title

Another simple way to find your textbook or subject readings is to search by title using Primo Search. Searching for a resource using the full citation (author, date, resource title, publisher) can overload Primo with too much information. By searching the title only, you can use the rest of the citation details to filter your results. The same goes for eBooks.
