Reading Lists @ Strathclyde (Staff): About the service

Option 1: Build your own reading list with support from library staff

Follow the instructions in the Reading List Handbook to start building your list. You may wish to attend a training session to help you get started.


Reading lists created/amended by academic staff will be treated as High Priority and Library staff will endeavor to complete checks within 5 days. 


If you need assistance, contact the reading list team by email. 


Contact the Reading List Service supervisor via Teams or Zoom for one-to-one meetings.

Option 2: Ask Library staff to build the reading list

If you would like Library staff to build your reading list please submit it within these designated deadlines:

Date of commencement of programme Date to submit reading list
August 2023 10th July 2023
September 2023 7th August 2023
January 2024 20th November 2023

Lists submitted after this will be dealt with on a first come first served basis. While every effort will be made to have lists ready for the start of teaching it will not be possible to guarantee that lists received after the deadline will be completed for week one of teaching. 

Send your reading list information to the Reading List Service email account.

Reading lists to be created/amended by Library staff will be treated as Medium Priority.
