Course materials

It is important to ensure that everything on your prescribed text and recommended reading lists are 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.


All reading lists are made available via the myReadings platform. For more information see Register myReadings.
