Limited physical copies of the key reading are available in the library but there is a free on-line access (need to be connected to Uni). Useful general reading is also listed below. In addition to this, targeted reading will be assigned and where possible supplied via the VLE to support the tasks in individual weeks workshops or to provide a context for the lectures; this can be found in the Week-by-Week section of the site.
