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). 

To create a bookmark, you first need to have installed the bookmark button. You can find out how to do this here.

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

To create a bookmark to a book, you first need to find the item on the library catalogue. Once you have opened the catalogue record, you can then select 'Add to my Bookmarks' from your bookmarks bar. Just check that the information pulled through is correct, and then select 'Create' to create a bookmark.

Creating a bookmark to a specific chapter of a book is very similar. You again just need to find the appropriatebook in the library catalogue, and select 'Add to my Bookmarks'. You then need to go to 'Add field' and select 'Has part (chapter, article, etc)'. You can then select the resource type as 'Chapter' and add in the appropriate information by using the 'Add field' options. Once you're happy with the information, select 'Create' to create a bookmark.
