Rollover

Thanks to DylanRoll over of lists from 2016/2017 to 2017/2018 will be happening next week Wednesday 31st May before the Blackboard rollover. All the current year’s published lists will be copied over to the new academic year.

Please note that as this year’s Blackboard rollover will also assign new codes to modules, the new 2017/2018 lists in RLO will not link correctly until they are mapped to the changed codes. We will be working with our suppliers to complete this work over the following weeks.

New feature – Quick add book

rloquickaddRLO has a new feature which makes adding a bookmark to a book very quick and easy.

On the My Bookmarks page, go to Add > Quick add book. This will open a pop-up window where you can search for a book by ISBN, title or author.

It will search for matching items and show if they are available in the library and whether they are already on a reading list online.

When you find the book you want, click on Select and the item will be added to your bookmarks.
