Reading List News!

We are moving our online reading lists to a new system which will have a new look and feel (but still accessible via MyBeckett) and make it easier to customise and navigate.

Because of this you won’t be able to access your current list from 9 July to 1 August.  We appreciate that this may impact you if you are studying on accelerated and distance learning programmes and have therefore recommended to teaching staff that they create a Word version of the list for you to use during this time.

Blog post 2 4th July

Academic Librarian(s)  or LLIResourceLists@leedsbeckett.ac.uk are able to help staff do this and can also answer any queries. Staff should also continue to send requests for new resources to Academic Librarian(s) throughout this period as this will ensure that resources are ordered before the start of Semester One.

Thank you for your patience as we move to our new system which we’re sure will improve the student experience. Once the system is available we will provide more information about how to use it.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for support 24/7.

We’d love to hear from you!
