If you haven’t used the Reading Lists site before, you need to set up a user profile by clicking on Create a profile, at the top of the screen.
You can capture resources from around the web and add them to your 'My Bookmarks' page or directly to a reading list. To do this, you need to install a bookmarking tool to your browser. There are two methods for adding a bookmarking tool:
METHOD 1: The original bookmarklet
Log into the reading list website (see step 1).
From the top screen navigation, click on My Bookmarks.
On the right-hand side of the page, click on Install bookmark button.
A pop-up window will open to guide you through set up. Follow The bookmark button instructions. The tutorial automatically recognises which browser you are using and gives relevant guidance.
For further guidance and troubleshooting for specific browsers, see the print guide to adding the bookmark button.
METHOD 2: Bookmarking browser extension
Instead of using the tool above, you can also use the Talis Aspire browser extension - this is available for the Microsoft Edge, Firefox and Chrome browsers. These extensions have been developed to resolve some technical issues that can sometimes occur with the original bookmarklet tool. For information, see the Talis support article on installing browser extensions.
