Reading Lists

The Reading List system allows for the creation of electronic versions of reading lists. This enables direct-linking to ebooks, ejournal articles, library holdings of print items, webpages, digitised content, and a range of other documents. They can be accessed on any desktop or mobile device from anywhere in the world.

Reading Lists exist to direct students to those readings which will help them to succeed in their studies at King’s. They are not intended to be comprehensive bibliographies as students can find a long unstructured list daunting. Reading Lists allow you to give clear information about why the items appear on the list and to encourage students to make use of other academic libraries in the London area to find information for extended essays or dissertations.


Book Ordering

Individual books, DVDs, CDs and ebooks that have been requested by staff for all six libraries are purchased for the Library collection.

Academic staff ordering reading list resources should see information about the Reading List system.
