How do I access items on my online Reading List?

Your online reading list can contain different types of resources for your module and are usually available either in print or on online


Online items (i.e. eBooks, websites, articles and journals) are indicated by the 'View Online' button to the right of the item and can be accessed by clicking on this button.

In some cases, there may be multiple options.  You can choose any of these links to access the resource, so if one link doesn't work, you can try the next one on the list.
