New books in the Library related to the Built Environment

Here you can find examples of newly purchased books or eBooks that have found a home in the Library collections.

The books here have been selected either because they are listed on the Reading List Online for one of your modules or they have been selected by your subject librarian. The contents of this box changes often as we purchase books all year long!

What are Reading Lists?

Most reading lists for the Built Environment are available in the University's Reading List Online (RLO) system.

This means that you have one list for each module which includes links to the resources your lecturers recommend for each module including:

  • information about books’ availability
  • links to our online resources, including e-books and journal articles
  • scanned extracts of key readings

You can find links to your reading list from the homepage of your Blackboard module/course content.

Think of the reading list as your starting point within each subject! It has been designed to develop your subject knowledge and you can develop further by searching in Library Search for other resources related to your module.
