If you click on this you’ll see a dropdown with a full breakdown of each section of your reading list. This is useful if you wish to head straight to a particular part of your reading list, (please note: all lists are created by your tutor and will differ in contents). 


This drop down gives you the option to filter the resources on this list. The first 2 are straightforward; Physical Resources and Online Resources (filter by physical stock and online). The middle section is to do with a filter of your reading intentions. The last part is a filter of your Core, Key and Additional reading. 

Citation Style:

This is where you have a series of options to download your reading list in a particular format, as a list of citations, or as a complete reading list. The image below, is the category PDF - bibliography download. 

Reading List Intentions and the "Hamburger menu": 

If you look to the right you will see a circle. Click on this, and it will give you a list of reading intentions. This is useful to help you keep track of what you are reading, and what you have read.  You can chose from 5 intentions: Undecided, Will read, Reading now, Have read, Won't read. 

Next to the circle is a “hamburger menu” (3 vertical dots). On this drop down, you’ll see that you can add to your bookmarks, create a personal note, and download the reading list as a RIS file, and can share the item.
