How do I structure the list by weeks or topics?

You can add sections to a list or modify the existing sections.

To add a section, click the New Section button and give your section a title.

To edit an existing section, or one without a title, right click on the three dots and choose Edit Section. You can also add a description and control the visibility of the section by adding in dates. Be sure to press Save.

To move a section, click on the bullet list to collapse the section view.

Hover over a section to highlight it and then drag the little blue bar to move the sections up and down.

How do I add library items to the reading list?

You can add items from the libraries collections by clicking the large plus sign (+) in the blue box at the top of the Reading List sections.


This brings up a search that is identical to searching JumboSearch. To limit your search to library items, choose Library Catalog.

After you find an item you want to add, just click on the item, and then click Add.

When you are done adding items, click on the X in the upper right corner of the popup. Your item will be added to the bottom of the section you added it to.

You will notice that the citation says Being Prepared.  This means the library will be alerted that you want this item added so that they can retrieve it from the shelves or recall it if necessary.  This item is not automatically placed on reserve at this point!

When library staff have processed the item and put it on reserve in your affiliated library, the status will change to Complete and the location will be changed to the Reserve Desk location.
