‘Exams Start… Now’ by Ryan McGilchrist

Students involved in the Late Summer Assessments (19th August – 6th September 2019) may need to consult their reading list for revision.

The reading list rollover around 16th July means that the 2018-19 reading lists will archive.  From 17th July the lists available to view will be the new lists for academic year 2019-2020;  these are available to update immediately for the new session.

If you are aware of students who may need access to the 2018-19 lists:

  • students can now take a copy of the list by using the ‘Export’ button
  • or save the URL of the list, which will continue to work even after the list is archived
  • Or if a list has already archived, let us know that it needs to be revived, and we can do this.

The Exam papers archive remains all year round, and the papers can also be searched for via Explore, the library catalogue.

 

How ReadingLists@UCL can help you at exam time

SandraBamborough26 February 2015

Many UCL courses have an online reading list to guide you in your study. Reading lists are a tailored list of resources which may include links to full text readings, library books or TV clips, which you can access online anywhere, any time.

Your reading list is an essential tool to help you revise for your exams.  It might contain readings which you have read in preparation for class, and they are a quick and easy way for you to look back over them when doing your revision.  Many readings might be key texts which link out to full-text e-journal articles, or e-books.  Where books are in the library, you will see links to the library catalogue (Explore) so you can instantly check whether the book is on the shelf and place a reservation if it is on loan.

Where your tutors have written notes to guide you, or tags to show which resources are essential reading, these will also prove helpful as you go back over the resources you have used this year.   You can sort the list by importance and refer back to any of your own notes that you may have added (remember to sign in first!).  Perhaps most importantly, you can export the readings into a different citation format, invaluable when referencing your sources.

Access the reading lists for your courses directly through Moodle via a link in the ‘Library resources’ block (where you can also see any relevant Online Exam Papers).  Search the ReadingLists@UCL homepage by module code or title, or by your lecturer’s name if they have made this available. You can also browse by department or search Explore, the library catalogue.

You can find more information on the student information webpage for reading lists and if you need any help do please contact your Subject or Site Librarian!

Good luck!
