Guides on how to use your reading lists to access full-text articles and chapters

Accessing your reading lists

Your reading lists, with full-text links to essential readings, are available on your Moodle course pages. The library service uses a system called KeyLinks to produce the online reading lists, in collaboration with course leads and tutors. You can also access your reading lists directly on the KeyLinks website by clicking the three horizontal lines at the top of the screen (highlighted in the image below) and finding the appropriate year and portfolio.

Using online reading lists

When you arrive at your online list page, if you’re unable to see the content of the list, make it visible by clicking the sublist symbol next to the title (highlighted in the screenshot below).

Move between sections on a list by using the section tabs at the top (highlighted in the image below) or just scroll down.
