Library Guides

Create and manage your online reading list: BETA overview

This guide is for academic staff.

Important information for BETA list edit users if you are creating a brand new list

When you create a brand new list, you will initially be taken to the classic list edit view as shown in the Create list page of this guide. Click on the Save Draft button to go to the beta list edit mode.

For existing lists, you will be immediately in the beta edit mode when you open the list.

How do I get access to the beta edit mode

The new edit mode is not yet the standard interface but you can be an early adopter and help us test out the new features.

If you would like to use the new edit interface, contact your Academic Liaison Librarian and ask for an invite.


What are the main changes in the beta edit mode?

  • Edit mode by default – there is no need to go into a separate edit screen
  • Autosaving of changes – prevent accidental loss of data
  • Publish button at the top of your list to make changes visible to your students and alert the library to purchase new items
  • Clear notification if there are unpublished changes on your list
  • Improved and inclusive process for adding and moving sections
  • Improved access to your existing bookmarks
