How can I save favorite resources to use on my lists?

The Collection feature in the Reading List tool allows you to save favorite resources and easily add them to your lists.

To access your Collection, open any of your Reading Lists and click on the square menu at the top of the screen.

From the dropdown menu, choose Collection.

Your Collection looks similar to a Reading List, but only you have access to it, and it’s not connected to a course.

To add a citation from a Reading List to your Collection

You can save citations from any of your Reading Lists to your Collection to easily reuse them on additional lists.

In the Reading List, find the citation and open the Options menu by clicking “...” to the right of the title.

Choose “Copy to my collection.”

To add citations directly to your Collection

After opening your Collection, you can add citations by clicking the plus sign icon. This will open the same search screen you see when you add items to a reading list. Choose Library Search to find materials from the library’s collections or choose Blank Form to add an item the library doesn’t own.

Enter your search terms, click the item you want from the search results, and click Add.

To add citations from your Collection to a Reading List

Open a Reading List, click the Add Items button, and choose Collection from the menu.

You can then add citations to the Reading List by clicking and dragging, or by selecting the title and choosing Add.
