Most reading lists for Food and Nutrition are available in the University's Reading List Online (RLO) system which 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 lists from the Support Resources button on your Blackboard module/course content or alternatively you can search for your module by module name, module code in Reading List Online.
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.
