About Reading Lists:
- What a reading list is, why it’s useful, why it’s dangerous
- What makes a resource academic, and why that matters (as well as why sometimes it doesn’t matter at all)
- How to interpret a reading list – how to assess it for relevance, how to understand what you’re seeing. This section will explain references
You can tell what format the resource is in from the reference. Depending on the style of reference or punctuation some may vary but the main structure is the same. You can create references for your own referencing style i.e Chicago by using iDiscover "citation" feature where the book information is.
- How to search for resources particularly using keywords, and how to write better keywords
Camguides has all the relevant information on how to break down a reading list into different types of resource and know how to recognise them from their reference.
