You can access resource lists for your modules through Canvas.
Resource lists (which used to be called reading lists) contain all types of material: books, journal articles, chapters in ebooks or film clips etc.
Resource Lists@Bham is a new service so not all resource lists have been added yet.
If your module resource list is not there, please report it to us using firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know the module and your lecturer's name and we will contact them to get the list / to set up the canvas link.
If you spot any mistakes or problems in your lists please let us know at email@example.com
