2020-21 Reading lists

Your 2020-21 reading lists have been uploaded into RLO (Reading Lists Online) and are visible to students now. 

It is particularly important this year for you to revise your lists to include predominately ebooks rather than books only available in printed format, to support the hybrid model of delivery. For hints and tips on amending your lists to include more online resources see:, remember to check that any links to websites and journal articles on your lists still work as Library staff do not check these.

If you have made changes to your list remember to click on the publish button, otherwise the changes will not be visible to library staff or students. Therefore please follow the instructions below and publish your Semester 2 lists as soon as possible.

If your list has no changes, the library staff can still check it for new editions or e-book versions of book titles. To get your list checked, select request a review (please see instructions below).

If the 2020-21 list is prefixed with Subject to Approval or Subject to Review wait until the prefix has been removed by Library staff before making any changes. If you have any questions about this, please contact your Academic Librarian

Updating your lists has many benefits: 

  • Advance funds - It is especially important that reading lists for undergraduate students are up to date so students can spend their Teesside University Advance funds wisely.  
  • Accessibility – Prioritising ebooks and online resources reflects the new hybrid model, and removing out of date items ensures resources are relevant. 
  • Availability - The earlier you publish your lists the quicker the Library will be able to order new resources and updated editions.
