About bookmarking

Reading lists are created by bookmarking your selected learning resources. The records you create include all resource types such as books, eBooks, journal articles, book chapters, websites and more. These are all referred to as bookmarks.

The term bookmarking is not related to the creation of bookmarks or favourites in your internet browser. It is a specific term used by Talis Aspire to describe the way resources are added to a list.

What is a bookmarklet?

  • This is the tool that bookmarks your selected readings.
  • It is installed into your web browser.

How does the bookmarklet tool work?

It can be accessed in two ways:

  1. As a bookmark or favourite (for Microsoft Edge) in your browser’s bookmark bar, or
  2. As a browser extension downloadable from the Google, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge stores.
