Admins: Using your Working List, which is under the “Search” tab

While all other admin tools are under the “Admin” tab, your working list is under the “Search” tab, under “LIST“.

Now your working list is empty

To SAVE the contents of a bookshelf folder to your working list:

2. Select a folder (which opens it)

3. You’ll then see all the titles in the folder

4. Click on the button near the top-right labeled “Save to Working List

To EXPORT your working list:

To IMPORT a list of titles into your working list:

1. Go to the “Search” tab, then the “LIST” tab to open your working list

2. Click the “Import/Export” button at the far right

3. Go to wherever it is that you have your list of titles you want to ‘import’ (most likely in a Word or Excel document) and copy the list of either ISBNs, titles, or ebrary Doc IDs

– ebrary Doc IDs are the best choice if available because are unique
– ISBNs and titles are not as robust
– If using ISBNs, include all ISBNs you have for a book
– If using titles, any differences in punctuation or spelling will not match

4. Paste the list into the import window

5. Click radio button for corresponding type at the top

6. Click “Import

This will find all books in the list that are either purchasable on your site or are already on your site and put them in your working list.

Any books that are not already on your ebrary site will show a “$” under the check-box to left of the cover (meaning they are purchasable).
