The term “Bookmarking” refers to adding a resource to a reading list. If you haven’t set up the Bookmark Button in your browser yet, go to the Quick start guide - Teaching Staff. If you have already added a resource to your list and need to request a digitisation from a print resource, go to the Request digitisations guide.
You can add any type of resource to a reading list regardless if it is held by Griffith. The Reading List team regularly check list items and attempt to provide access electronically first and then in print. If you add an item not held, you can also initiate the checking via the Suggest a purchase form. Be sure to include the Course Code and whether the reading is Required or Recommended.
Create a bookmark
- Search for the resource (book, article, etc.) in the Library Catalogue or through your preferred internet search for non-Library items.
- Add the bookmark using the Bookmark Button according to the type of resource or manually create a bookmark.
In the bookmark form, you can either choose to save the bookmark (Create) to add to your reading list later or you can add it immediately (Create & Add to List) in one step. Resources are not visible to students until you Publish the list.
- Select Create. The bookmark is saved for later action.
- Continue bookmarking other resources if needed or go to Add bookmarked resources to the list section below.
Add the bookmarked resources to the list
- Log In to the Reading List service and open your reading list.
- If you chose to Create & add to list, the bookmarked resource will be appear in the top or bottom of the section that you added it to.
Each reading in a list must be assigned an importance tag of Required resource or Recommended resource. These tags assist students to plan their study. These are also used by the Library when purchasing resources to ensure that the University complies with the Higher Education Support Act 2003. See the Reading List Service Overview for more information.
There are no set guidelines on adding student notes. However, these can be helpful to assist students when accessing the readings (e.g. for an ebook include the chapter or page numbers). Griffith University Library staff add notes for copyright compliance issues.
