Readings in Library Search

Note: Viewing your readings in Library Search will only show you items in your reading list that are held in the Library or through the Library's subscriptions, so you may not see other course materials recommended by your lecturer. It is recommended to use your full reading list in MyUni (see above).

Search for a specific reading:

  • Search for the reading in Library Search
  • If the item is in an active reading list, a COURSE icon will display below the item details in the search results.

Search for a reading by course:

  • Enter your course code in the Library Search box e.g. ECON 1000 and select the option to search Course Readings.
  • You can then refine your search results by Course Code and Name.
