PLEASE NOTE: All CMIT modules have now been withdrawn,
and are unavailable for the 2010/11 academic year
These web pages and lecture notes are left as reference for those students requiring CMIT modules to complete their programme only, and are not an indication of modules currently offered.
The module notes are designed to give introductions to most of the topics covered, and contain links and references to further reading throughout, most of which will be found online. If you want a further overview, then these books may help, and can be borrowed from the CMIT office.

For more in-depth coverage, and for books and resources on specific issues, look at the working bibliography for all Gary's modules. Note that many of the more specialised titles on this list are personal copies belonging to CMIT staff - if you can't find a book, ask Gary!
There are some scanned excerpts of a few of these books available in a local archive. Also avalable are some audio files, mostly of useful radio programmes. These are available only from computers on the campus network.
