Create a bookmark (item record)

  • the journal article (preferably the HTML or abstract page)
  • the eBook frontpage
  • the webpage, website, or document
  • the Library Search record for a print book.
  1. Ensure you have the bookmarklet installed.
  2. Click on Add to My Bookmarks in your (or Favourites) toolbar or the Talis Aspire browser extension.
  3. The page with the item details will load. The information can be edited here or later on from My Bookmarks or when you add the bookmark to a reading list.
