Library Online: Curated reading lists

Welcome to Hallam Library curated reading lists.

What are the curated reading lists?

Hallam librarians are quite keen on books! We think a great book has the potential to take you anywhere, whether that’s to the depths of Mordor or the beautiful county estate of Pemberley.

They can also inspire and effect change, and with our fantastic range of books we can help you research ideas outside of your studies at Hallam.

You can find a range of reading lists below to help you explore a range of political and social issues, or find one to help you unwind and take a break from academic studies – recreational reading with a little bit of dystopian fiction anyone? And if you fancy yourself as the next Yotam Ottolenghi make sure to check out ‘Get cooking with the library’.

We ask... where will a book take you today?

This is me! Recommend a book to the library!

One of the best things about a library is the collection keeps developing as teaching, learning and research changes. There will be more online resources like online journal articles in the Library collection today than there were yesterday!

You can be part of this growing collection by recommending books to the library for purchase. If you have read something and you think it would be a useful addition to the Library collection then let us know!

You can do this using the form below.

  • If we are unable to purchase a recommended resource then we would explain why we made this decision.
  • Currently, we are prioritising the purchase of digital resources that are on module reading lists or needed to support research.
  • If you request an item that is only available in print we will contact you to discuss whether we are able to purchase it.

We look forward to seeing what you recommend and welcome your help shaping the Library Collection.
