Faculty of Philosophy


Philosophy Library Shelves

The Faculty reading lists are available from the Reading List Online (RLO) platform. See the RLO LibGuide for more information. 

To access scans of book chapters and extracts you will need to log into Moodle using your Raven login and click on the Reading List link from there.  PDFs of reading lists are also available to download from each Moodle course.

Instructions for creating a printable reading list are included in the RLO LibGuide. Scroll down to 'Exporting a reading list to a bibliography'. You can export the whole list or just the particular section you need.  

If you have any difficulties finding or accessing any readings you need or navigating RLO please email and we'll do our very best to help.
