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.  Word and PDF versions of reading lists are also available to download from the Faculty Reading Lists page.

Instructions for creating a printable reading list in a variety of styles and formats 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.
