Read!t reading lists - there is more to discover

[Translate to English:] Tipps

The literature recommendations from your course are so interesting that you want to make a note of them for your thesis? You want to mark articles from your reading list as “already read”?

The WU library has put together a few tips and tricks on how to use the read!t reading lists even better for your studies.

  • Getting started: You can find the reading lists for your courses in the course catalog (syllabus) in the field “Readings”. Alternatively, you can access the reading lists via the central read!t-portal. Just log in with your WU account and you are ready to go.

  • Access to eResources: To access eBooks, eJournals, eArticles and numerous databases of the library directly from home, you have to activate the VPN connection.

  • Mark literature & add notes: To help you keep track of what literature you've already worked on, you can mark it as “already read”. In addition, you can add a short private note to each resource to write down important thoughts regarding the literature right away. If one of the publications is also interesting for your seminar paper or thesis, you can export the literature reference with a few clicks into a reference management program.

For all our read!t-tips see Fit4Research.
