Resource List provides you with easy access to reading materials prescribed by your instructors for particular module, including books, readings and other online resources. Let's check out the FAQs below to explore more about your Resource List!
Resource List contains books, readings and other materials prescribed by your instructors for a particular module. Your lecturer might have tailored a list to help you navigate the items more easily, and you'll find that items are tagged as Reference List or Textbook List so that you know which to read first. The book(s) tagged as Textbook List means they are essential course reading materials, which can only be checked out from the Library for a short loan period. The links of each item provides information about where items are in the Library and it also tells you if books are out on loan. If the library has electronic copy, they will link directly to the reading so it is really easy for you to access it.
The Course Scheme Reading List is the Reading List from the course programme document. Library staff will help import the Course Scheme Reading List of each course, if the list is available in the course programme document. Sometimes, your lecturer might create an additional reading list for his/ her students, you may find it under the Course Scheme Reading List with your lecturer's name (eg. Reading List MM4922 (Peter Chan)).
You may click on the item from the reading list and check the status of the book. If it is available, you may check the location of the book by clicking on the Location button, and follow the Call no. to look for it at the shelves.
If the book you need is out on loan you can place a request on the item to get hold of it quicker.
Actually not all courses will have a reading list. If it's not available in the course programme, and the instructor did not create one, there will be no list available there. If there should be a list and it is still not visible, please contact our library staff at email@example.com or contact your Faculty Librarian.
If you find an item useful in any of your course reading list(s) available in Resource List, you may add the item to My Collection for easy reference. (Please make sure you logged in with your NetID and Net Password.)
