Upgrades to Libraries and Computer Suites – Nov/DecBalloonUpgradeWork.PNG

We are pleased to announce that RFID (radio-frequency identification) will be implemented in our campus libraries in the next couple of months. This project will improve our services and allow us to install fast new self-service machines, which will make it easy for you to check out a pile of books in seconds.  

We are also creating new subject hubs for Computing and Law, bringing together all the resources students need in one place.

We will aim to minimise disruption to students and staff at all times. Please contact us​ if you have any questions.

New - Reading Lists 2017/18

New Reading Lists are making it easier to find the core reading you need for your courses.

The new readings lists system (Leganto) will give you easy access to the items you need to read for your course, regardless of whether these include books, e-books, e-journals or websites. You’ll be able to leave comments and collaborate with other students, or create your own collections of items.


How do I find my Reading List?

Access your reading list from your module page in Moodle or search for a list at http://readinglists.napier.ac.uk​


Note that not all courses are using the new reading list software. If your module leader is using Reading Lists, then you should see a link in your Moodle module.

See more information​.


Problems? If you find broken links or have questions, contact library@napier.ac.uk.
