Frequently asked questions about reading lists

How do I find my reading lists?

Reading lists are available in MyPlace. Look for a link called Reading Lists in the My Place areas for the modules which you are studying. If you can't find a link please contact the Reading List team lib.readinglists@strath.ac.uk

I've read everything on my reading list, where else should I look for materials for my course?

The Library's LibGuides would be a good place to look. These guides list recommended databases to help you find materials such as journal articles or conference papers beyond those on your reading list. Link to LibGuides. 

Does the library have any books which give advice about reading at university?

Yes, try a search on SUPrimo using keywords such as reading skills, or more general terms such as study skills. 

Can I make a list of things which I've read on a reading list?

Yes. You can mark the items which you had read on a reading list by clicking on the tick icon on each item which you have read. You can then filter the list using the filter icon > other to see either a list of the items which you have marked as read, or those which you have not marked as read.  

Can I use reading lists with EndNote?

Yes. Click on the three dot icon under the course information section. Then select export > EndNote. This will create an RIS file which can be imported into EndNote Desktop or EndNote online. It will be necessary to check all data for accuracy and in some cases editing of data in EndNote will be required. 

There aren't enough copies of printed books on my reading list, can the library buy more copies?

If you feel that there are not enough copies of a book on a reading list please let the Library know. You can contact the Reading List team, email lib.readinglists@strath.ac.uk

Accessing reading lists

Reading Lists are available via MyPlace. Look for and click on a link called Reading List.
