Introducing your Library webinars

Get to know your Library!

Book a place on a webinar to find out how to use the Library collections online, and using the Library building safely. Get a head start and find material relevant to your studies.

  1. Once you have completed enrolment, and have your University username and password, log into RISIS.
  2. Click 'Actions' at the top of the RISIS homepage, and choose 'Library Course Bookings'.
  3. Click 'Book a Library Course' to select your session.

  4. You will receive a confirmation email on the day, and a link to join the webinar on the day you have selected.

If you can no longer attend a webinar or need to book an alternative webinar, please log back into RISIS, go to 'Actions' and choose 'View/Amend your Library course bookings'. Thank you!

If you can't make a webinar, you can watch (and re-watch!) a recorded video guide. Let us know what you think, and if you've any questions at all by contacting library@reading.ac.uk

Can you solve the mystery and get back to the right timeline?
