It is important you ensure that everything on your prescribed reading list is available through the Library. Librarians can help to find suitable resources and ensure that they are available. Wherever possible, we will try to source online versions to ensure equity and ease of access for all students, whether on campus or online.

Library items identified in the UCMS reading list as prescribed texts will have one copy automatically placed for in library use only at each campus where the unit is delivered on campus.

Copyright material made available online or distributed in digital form must be registered with myReadings and made available via the myReadings platform.
