Using the My Lists feature

The My Lists feature allows you to create, edit, share, and remove lists.

Lists are lists of items that can be used for any number of purposes. For example, to keep track of what books you have read, books you would like to read, to maintain a class reading list, to maintain a reading list for a book club, to keep a list of books you would like for your birthday. There are an unlimited number of uses.

You can create and see your lists by logging in My Account, and clicking on the Lists tab. You can also reach the List tab when you click on the Add to My List Button in the catalog.

  • In the Create New List section, enter a name for your list into the text box. Decide if you would like to share the contents of the list with other users, and click the Submit button.
  • Search for titles in the catalog. Click the Add to My Lists Button to add titles to your list.

What does “Share this List” mean?
Lists can either be private, and only viewable by you; or public, and viewable by anyone who knows where the list resides. By default, all lists are private, and you must explicitly instruct the system to allow others to view the contents of a list. You can elect to share a list from the My Account area, Lists section.

You can give the address of your list to anyone you want to share it with. In the Lists section, in the list of your lists, there is a View link for every shared list. Bookmark this link in your browser or copy and paste the address to share your list.
