Module leaders - call for reading lists

Module leaders are asked to send the library their reading lists. These should be emailed to for an online version to be created in Canvas. The library will check resources are in stock, and that the most up to date editions are listed.

Please send your list(s) 8 weeks in advance of the module starting, to allow the library to obtain alternative formats where necessary for students with specific accessibility or education requirements.

Changes to existing online reading lists in Canvas, e.g. to add new resources, may be sent to

Reading lists will be added to Bradford’s new online reading list system, TALIS, and can be accessed in Canvas modules by clicking on the reading list link.

I’ve really liked the flexibility around library opening hours, as an environment for learning it's friendly and helpful.
