Bookmarking Resources

The Bookmark Button

The quickest way to add a resource to your reading list is bookmark it from the Library website.

You'll need to install a bookmark button or an extension to your browser to do this:

  1. Log in to Reading Lists and go to 'My Bookmarks'
  2. A pop-up will allow you to set-up the browser extension or click on 'Install Bookmark Button' to install the bookmark tool.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions for your broswer.

The bookmark tool isn't currently available for mobile devices, and the set-up depends on which browser you are using.

Adding Resources

We've written step-by-step guidance on adding some of the most common types of resources using the bookmark button:

Manually adding bookmarks

We would recommend using the bookmark button for all resources but sometimes you may need to add a bookmark manually. To do this:

  1. Log in to Reading Lists and go to 'My Bookmarks'
  2. Click on 'Add', and then 'Add manually'
  3. You'll be redirected to an item record page - fill in the Resource Type and Title
  4. Use the 'Add field' drop-down to add the author and publisher information. The more metadata you can include, the easier it is for us to check.
  5. Click 'Create & Add to List' to add the resource directly to one of your reading lists.
