Reading Lists

readinglistsDo you know about the Goldsmiths’ online Reading Lists System? The online Reading Lists System was launched in September 2014. Currently we have around 300 reading lists available online. The system website is http://readinglists.gold.ac.uk and it can also be accessed via learn.gold, the library catalogue and the library web pages.

The online Reading Lists System enables students to access their reading lists online. It shows the real-time availability of items in the library; as well as linking directly to online resources such as e-books, journal articles, audiovisual items such as DVDs, blogs and even Youtube clips etc. It provides simple access to course reading materials, and students can easily identify essential readings, recommending readings materials for each topic/week/course.

Students can add notes to each item or add their reading intention to a list as well as create their own reading lists once they’ve signed in using their campus username/password. Further information and guidelines for the system can be found at http://www.gold.ac.uk/media/Student%20Quick%20Guide.pdf

If you don’t find a list on the system for your course, it is possible that your lecturer has not set one up; ask them in the first instance. Not all lecturers will choose to place their lists here.
