OPAC: My Account - My Lists

Evergreen v.2.2


Patron can create two types of lists of library materials:

Temporary lists
  • Temporary list items can be transferred to an existing list to be saved permanently
  • Temporary lists can be used to keep track of items for hold requests, which can be placed in batch
  • Temporary lists will timeout or go away once the patron logs out
Saved lists
  • Saved lists are saved to the patron account, where they will remain until deleted by the patron
  • Patrons can have as many saved lists, with as many items in each list, as they want
  • Saved lists can be annotated, shared, and downloaded

Add to my list (not logged in)

When not logged in, click "Add to my list" in the search results or title details to add the selected item to a temporary list. This will save the item while you are searching, and can later be placed on hold or added to a saved list. Once a list item has been added, the "Add to my list" option will change to "Remove from my list", and a new button labelled "View My List" will appeak. Click View My List to go to the My Lists section.

Add to a list when you have more than 9 or 10 lists

By default, the catalog caps the number of lists displayed to 9 in the "Add to my list" drop down next to a title, and 10 per page in the My Lists: Saved Lists list. The lists are sorted alphabetically. To add a title to a list that does not appear in the drop down:
  1. Click Add to my list
  2. Click See All
  3. Navigate to the page with the correct list
  4. Click Add to this list
The Saved Lists list will refresh to the first page. There is no other conformation that the item has been added, and the "Add to … list" buttons do not change, but the title has been added. Click the browser's back button to return to your search results.

Another option is using a Temporary List.
  1. Select "Temporary List" from the "Add to my list" options for every title to save
  2. After desired titles have been selected, click View My Lists
    • The temporary list items will display above the Saved Lists
  3. Navigate to the page with the correct list

  5. Click "Actions for these items" and select the list

Move Temporary List items to an Existing List

Selecting list items and creating lists are two seperate actions. Add items are selected from search, and added to a temporary list. Temporary list items are then moved to an existing list. Patrons can login before creating the temporary list or after, but must be logged in in order to create or retrieve saved lists.

These directions start from a patron not yet logged in, who is creating a new list, then moving the temporary list items.
  1. Search the catalog
  2. For each title of interest, click Add To My List
  3. Click Login to Your Account
  4. Click View My List; the temporary list items will display in the Your Exisiting Lists section
  5. Create a new list
  6. From the temporary list, select the titles to move
  7. In Actions for these items, select the destination List
  8. Click Go
  9. The Temporary List items disappear; click on the saved list name to view your items
