Still need some ideas of what to read? In addition to the link we offered above, here are some other reading lists. We can help you locate any of the books listed in our library. If we do not have a particular library book, and you are affiliated to our university, we will be happy to place a request from another library via our ILLiad Interlibrary Loan System. Never used ILLiad before? It’s very easy to use. Feel free to ask us how. This is just a small sampling of reading lists available online.
