Reading Lists Online

How to edit and updates lists on Reading Lists Online, and how to request digitised extracts.

Installing the Bookmark button 

Before you can start adding your references to Reading Lists Online, you need to install a Bookmark Button on your browser.  The Bookmark button allows you to capture resources and add them to your My bookmarks page. You only have to install the Bookmark button once on your PC or on your laptop. 

To install the Bookmark Button:

  • Select My Bookmarks tab.
  • Select Install Bookmarks Button.
  • Follow the instructions on the screen to add the Bookmark Button to your favourites on your toolbar. 

You may want to rename the Bookmark Button. The default name is 'Add to My Bookmarks'. To rename the Bookmark Button, simply right-click and select Properties. In the Name field, change the name e.g. Bookmark to ReadingLists.

Bookmarking books and e-books in the library collection 

  • Open the reading list you want to edit or update.
  • Open another tab on your browser and go to CityLibrary Search
  • Search for the title of a book, i.e. Sage Handbook of qualitative data analysis
  • Click on the Add to My Bookmarks button you installed in your Favourites toolbar
  • The bookmark to reading list link will display next to each format of the book. Click on the link.

A book record in CityLibrary Search results, next to the book format and availability is a link to "Bookmark to reading list".

You will open another page, including all the details of the book and the URL if you have bookmarked the e-book. Look at the options at the bottom of the screen and select Create Two buttons labelled Create and Create and Add to List.

Adding bookmarks to your reading list

Now that you have bookmarked the book / e-book you want to add to your reading list,

  1. Find the reading list you need to update in Reading Lists Online. 
  2. Open the list, and scroll down to the section and place you want to add the new reference.
  3. Select Add a resource.  You will open the list of items you have recently bookmarked. 
  4. Click on the reference, and it will be automatically added to your reading list. 
  5. If you have to add other references that you had bookmarked earlier, use the search by title, author or ISBN to find the bookmark and add it to the reading list.
