Using your Reading List
Your unit Reading List is where you can find and access your readings for the unit.
You can access your Reading List by:
- searching your unit code in the Library Search box on the Library website homepage or in DeakinSync;
- asking DeakinGenie (prescribed texts only) if you've downloaded the app to your mobile device;
- going directly to your Reading List; and
- viewing your unit resources list in your unit site on CloudDeakin.
Each reading in the list has an image on the left next to the title. You can select the image or the title of the reading to view more information about the resource including;
- Other formats/editions
- Details of the resource
To access a reading select the View Online button, located on the right.
Note: If a reading does not have a View Online button then this may be a hardcopy resource. You can select the title to view availability and find the resource on the shelf.
Example: This book is available in the Waurn Ponds and Melbourne Burwood Campus Libraries. You can select the Copy Available link to view further details in the Library Catalogue.
If you are having trouble finding a resource view the Finding it on the shelf video or speak to a library staff member.
Searching the Reading List
You can use the Search bar in the top right corner of your reading list to search the list.
There is a Table of Contents button in the top left of your reading list which allows you to quickly navigate to sections in the reading list.
