Social Sciences: Using your unit reading list

Subject guide for social science courses: criminology / sociology


Reading lists are a good starting point for your studies. They will include academic journal articles, books and other important reading material. Remember to be selective about what you read. Some items might be marked as essential, but many are optional. Don't become overwhelmed.

All units will have a link to an online reading list in the top navigation bar and all items on a reading list will be available to you unless the lecturer has indicated otherwise. If you have any problems accessing materials, please contact the library. Resources will be available in either print (physical) or electronic format, or both.

If books are in great demand, you may need to join a queue (ebooks) or reserve a copy (print books).
