At the beginning of the academic year 2020-21, the Library Services undertook a huge project to support our academics as they were preparing for blended learning. We created almost 500 reading lists for courses in the first half session, and 368 reading lists for the second half session. Through these reading lists, students can have easy and direct access to the most important course materials.
If you want to access the reading lists of a particular course, please follow the steps below:
- Go to MyAberdeen, then select the required course.
- Once within the course’s opening page, check the links on the left-hand side of the screen
- Click on Books & Tools.
- On the right-hand side of the page, a pop-up window opens which displays the Reading List of the selected course.
- Click on Reading List to see the uploaded materials.
Remember, this is not the full list of the course materials you need to read for the given course. These are just the few most important items that your course coordinator highlighted. In this respect, the Reading List in MyAberdeen can never substitute the Course Handout which contains the full list of course readings.
Also, if during the semester, your course coordinator or other academic staff who are involved in teaching post announcements about course readings on MyAberdeen, and you cannot find them, please contact the person who made the announcement and NOT the library because we cannot help with these kind of inquiries.
We hope that providing Reading Lists services will enhance your learning experiences, and it will be hugely beneficial while you are completing assignments or preparing for your exams.
