Savedlist Help

This facility allows you to compile a list of records from the catalogue. You can then use this list of records for a number of purposes as follows:

  • Email details of the saved records to a nominated address
  • Download details of the saved records to a local disk file
  • Place a reservation on a selection of the records in your list, or place a reservation on all the records in the list (if there are 30 or less)

You do not need to login to use 'my savedlist' and there is no limit to the number of records you may have in your list. If you are not logged on however the list will only be temporary, to create a permanent list you will need to login to your account.

To access your savedlist, you can click on the  icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. This gives you quick access to your current savedlist. You will also see how many records are in your list.

When you are logged into the catalogue, you can have multiple savedlists. To view all of your savedlists and choose your active savedlists:

  1. Login to My account and access the user menu.
  2. Select Add new savedlist to add a new savedlist.
  3. Select View all savedlists to view all savedlists.

Under the user menu at the top of the page, you will see a list of all of your savedlists. Select which savedlist you would like to be the active savedlist.

To add records to your savedlist, perform a search in the catalogue to find the records you would like to save. If you retrieve a more than one record, your result set will be displayed in brief display. From a brief display, there are three ways you can add a record to your savedlist:

  1. Click on the  icon to quickly save individual titles to your active savedlist.
  2. Mark the checkbox for titles you would like to save, and then select the Save selections under the Options menu.
  3. From the Options menu select Save all. This will save every record in your current query to your current savedlist.

If you are logged in always remember to select your chosen savedlist from the user account menu to ensure the records are saved to the right list.

To remove records from your savedlist:

  1. Login to My account and access the dashboard.
  2. Select View all savedlists.
  3. Select the savedlist which you want to remove items from.
  4. Once in your list there are three ways in which you can remove records:
    • Click on the  icon next to the titles you wish to remove. This will unselect that title and delete it from your list. 
    • Mark the checkbox for titles you would like to remove, and then select the Remove selections under the Options menu.
    • From the Options menu select Remove all. This will remove every record in from your current savedlist.

If you have created a savedlist without logging in it will be kept the system for two days. It will be automatically cleared after this time.

Once you have added records to your savedlist, you can perform a number of functions with the records in the list as follows:

Browse Records

You can browse through the records in your savedlist as you would any other set of retrieved records. Your list will initially be presented in brief display. Click on a title link to display the selected record in full display.

Sort Set

You can use this option to sort the records in your list before emailing or downloading the records if required. You can use the Sort by option at the top of the results.

To refine your set:

  1. Access your savedlist
