ChiReadingLists for students

ChiReadingLists is the University's online reading list software which is used to access all core and recommended resources such as ebooks, videos, website links, and books available in our library catalogue. You can filter, search for resources, mark which ones will be useful to you and make notes against resources. You can also view citations for resources which can help you with your reference list.

There will be a link to your ChiReadingLists on your module Moodle pages.  Look for the Talis logo and contact your Subject Librarian or your lecturer if you cannot find the list on your module Moodle.

Alternatively, access the ChiReadingLists website and search for your reading list by module code, module name or lecturer.
