Talis Aspire

Your reading lists

eBook reader image Reading lists for each module, also known as resource lists, are produced in a tool called Talis Aspire. Each Moodle module site should contain a link to the reading list.

The reading list may contain books, journal articles, and links to other web content such as online videos. The lists are a great one-stop shop to the key materials your lecturers will expect you to use. They can provide

  • real-time information about books’ availability linking to Library Discovery
  • links to our online resources 
  • digital copies of chapters.    

For a quick introduction to your online reading lists, watch the student video on this page.

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. 

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible: 

  1. You may have general issues with accessing the site using assistive technology, for example a screen reader, due to missing or misapplied attributes within the code.
  2. Some of the accessibility challenges in using this website are unique to, or potentially amplified if you are involved in, creating or editing reading lists. Please contact us for support if you find this to be the case.
