Printing a Book-list Revisited

For a lot of patrons being able to make and print a book-list is pretty important. We’ve been waiting for this feature to return for sometime, and now thanks to a recent upgrade it’s back!

The following are step-by-step instructions. Although you don’t have to be logged it helps. Being logged in means you can add a book to an online list (public or private), and also place a hold. In the screenshots below I am logged in.

  1. The keyword search topic is “single parent families.”
  2. The collection being searched is Adult collection (A)
  3. The results have been sorted by Publication/Copyright Date: Newest to Oldest, and 20 out of 30 items have been displayed
  4. Check and uncheck to select all or none of the results, or select items individually
  5. To print a list you need to click Add to cart. If you are not logged in Add to list and Place hold are not available.

  1. The default is brief display but it’s more useful to click + More Details.
  2. This allows you to see how many copies are available
  3. And more importantly the call number.

At the top of the pop-up are options to Print (yay!), Email to a friend, and Download as a HTML. Below is an excerpt of how your printed book list might look.
