Reading Lists

2018/19 lists received into the Library are now being processed. All lists received before 31 July 2018 have been completed and we are now focussing on those lists received after that date, and on lists for Term 2.


traffic-lights2017/18 lists have now been archived and are no longer available for students.

Term One 2018/19 should now be published and available. If your list is still in draft form, please publish/request a review and we can check it and make it available for your students.

If you already have your Term Two list ready, please submit it as soon as you can. Contact us if you need any help with creating or editing a list.


Training sessions to get help with updating, editing and customising your list will be advertised here soon.

Contact us: the Reading List Team, readinglists dot library at warwick dot ac dot uk or your Academic Support Librarian for further help and advice.
