To help you get the most out of your learning, your lecturers will provide you with a reading list for each module. Your list may contain different types of sources, such as books, articles, podcasts, videos and websites. You will use your reading list to prepare for each week of your modules and to find sources for your exams and assignments.
The best place to find your reading list is on Blackboard. Each of your modules will have a Blackboard site. Look for the "Reading List" link in the left hand menu to link to your online reading list. You can also find your online reading list at http://readinglists.westminster.ac.uk. If your module does not have an online reading list, ask your lecturer.
When you look up a book on Library Search, you need the shelf number. You can also find shelf numbers using your online reading list. The shelf number will match the label on the book.
For more information on our book collections and how to find them, go to the Books page of this guide.
Books are automatically renewed unless:
Check your Library Search account regularly to keep your loans up to date. The library sends reminders to your Westminster email account.
You can make an online request for the item to be sent to your campus library. You can request most items and you can request up to five items at a time.
We do not charge fines. If you return a requested item late, your library account will be blocked. This means that you will not be allowed to borrow or request items for the length of time the book was overdue, and this may prevent other loans on your account being automatically renewed. Bring your requested books back by the due date to avoid this happening.
