Find unit reading

To find subject materials reserved by your lecturer, search the library for your unit code (e.g. PSY10004).

Search tips

  • Enter the title of the book, book chapter or article.
  • For a book chapter, try searching for the book title not the chapter title.
  • If you enter a complete citation, you may not find it. Try searching for the title only.

Understanding your reading list

A typical reading list has different types of material. Identifying these types will help you find them.


Look for the publisher and place of publication.

Book chapter

Look for the word in, followed by the editors and title of the book.

Dalton, M 2006 ‘Developing the global manager’, in RJ Burke & CL Cooper (eds) 2006, The human resources revolution: why putting people first matters, Elsevier, Amsterdam, pp. 123-136. 

Journal article

Look for the volume number, issue number or month and page numbers.
