The Philosophy Library team have been busy over the summer transferring our reading lists to the Reading List Online (RLO) platform. See the RLO LibGuide for more information.

The reading lists are still in draft while we complete final checks and upload additional scans of book chapters as time allows over the coming weeks and months.

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.  Access to the Moodle site is restricted to students taking Philosophy papers. 

Instructions for creating a printable reading list are included in the RLO LibGuide. Scroll down to 'Exporting a reading list to a bibliography'. We recommend exporting to Word, choosing the Expanded Reading List Style and deselecting the 'Item availability' and 'Permalinks' options. 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.
