Subject readings

Most subjects you enrol in will have a list of essential and recommended readings set by your Subject Coordinator. These resources are called 'subject readings' and can include textbooks, ebooks, book chapters and journal articles, as well as websites and videos.

Find your subject readings in Moodle

View your reading list and access resources directly from your subject's Moodle site. They may also be listed in your Subject Outline. Check with your Subject coordinator or tutor if unsure.

In Moodle look for the Subject readings icon.
