My Lists

Our catalogue now has a feature to save titles to a list, which you can then save, place holds on, print or email.

Why would you want to? Many reasons really, but some are:

  • If there are titles in a series or by an author that you want to get, you can save it in a list and then place holds on them as you work through the series.
  • You have reached your holds limit.
  • If you have research to do, you can save the titles used as a list, which can then be used as a basis for your bibliography.

How?  Any search can become a starting point for a list.
