Using the Reading List System for the first time

1. Logging into the System

The Reading List System is accessed via MyBeckett and uses the University's Single Sign on (SSO) system to log you into the system. 

1.  Log into MyBeckett and navigate to your desired module.
2.  Click on the "Reading List" link within the module. This is located in the menu on the left under 'Library Resources

*If this is your first time logging into the reading list system, you will be prompted to update your user profile.  You will only need to do this once.*  See the next section below to update your profile.

If you have any issues accessing the Reading List, try clearing the browser cookies. You may need to log in again afterwards. 

Please note: the Reading List system no longer supports Internet Explorer and does not work well in Safari.  We recommend you use Google Chrome for both MyBeckett and Reading List platforms. We also recommend you make updates to your reading list from a desktop PC or laptop, as some of the functions may be difficult to use from a smaller screen (i.e. mobile device).

If you are still having issues accessing the Reading List try our Reading List FAQs for more help and guidance.

2. Updating your profile

You can update your profile using the following steps:
1. Login to MyBeckett and go to the module in question, and click on the ‘Reading List’ link in the menu on the right.

2. Click your name in the navigation bar at the top of the reading list then "View Profile".

3. Click the Edit button (located to the right of your screen).

4. Update your user information, which includes: name, university email address, how you describe yourself (i.e. teaching staff) and your profile privacy/visibility selection: Private or public.

5. Once you are done click "Save Profile".

Once you have completed the above, you will now be able to access any module reading list you are attached to/enrolled.

If you want to return to the module content, click the module title at the top of the screen.

3. Navigating in MyBeckett

We recommend that you add the reading list you are working on to your personal favourites area ('My Lists') within the reading list system.  This makes it easier to navigate the system and add resources to reading lists.

To add a reading list to 'My Lists':

  1. Log into MyBeckett and access the reading list via the 'Reading List' link
  2. Click on the '+My Lists' button on the right 
  3. The button will change to a tick next to My Lists
  4. You have now saved the reading list to your personal 'My Lists' area

You can access the reading lists you have saved by going to the 'My Lists' link at the top left of the page, next to 'Home'.


When clicking on the 'Reading list' link via MyBeckett for the first time, click on 'Save' on the right-hand side in order to ensure the link is visible to students and is stable with MyBeckett.  If the 'Save' option doesn’t appear then the link has already been saved.

This will only need to be done once (per academic year) and can be easily relinked or changed using the 'Relink?' option at the top of the screen which appears when you go back into the reading list.
