Reading Lists

What is a bookmark?

Creating a bookmark is how you link to resources that you want you students to read, look at or use. You can bookmark to books, journals and journal articles through the library catalogue but you can also bookmark to webpages, online videos (YouTube or BoB), and online documents (Government publications for example). 

The information below goes through creating the main type of bookmarks and there are FAQs at the bottom of the page.

Creating a bookmark to a book or chapter

Use the 'Add Resource' option which appears as you scroll through a reading list to search for books and add them to the reading list immediately.

Below is a short video showing you how to add books to a list:

See the below FAQs on how to bookmark to a book not in the library catalogue.

Once you have added a book you can link to a particular chapter as appropriate. This is particularly useful if you the book is an edited work and you know the chapter name and author. Alternatively you can just add in a student note.

Below is a short video showing how to edit a bookmark to add chapter information.
