To add an item from Library SEARCH (0:50)
Click Add items > Library SEARCH. Copy and paste or type the title into the search field and click search. The item appears in the search results and is available electronically. Click and drag it on to your list or click it and choose where to add it, for example to the week 2 section. Then click 'ADD' or 'ADD & EDIT' for more options. The 'ADD & EDIT' window opens, where you can add a public note that's visible for students in the public notes field. For example a note could read: please note the diagram on page 124 in particular. Click save at the bottom right. The item appears in the week 2 section of the list with the public note beneath the title.
Add an ebook and specify the chapter you want students to read (2:00)
Click Add items > Library SEARCH. Search for the ebook and drag it on to your list. Click the ellipsis to the right of the book and click 'edit item'. The edit item panel will appear on the right. Change the resource type from book to book chapter using the drop down menu. Specify the chapter author, chapter title, chapter number and page range in the relevant fields. Click save at the bottom right.
On the list the resource type is indicated before the resource title and has changed from book to book chapter. When students click through it will take them to the whole book and they'll still have to find the specific chapter. Add a public note informing students they are only required to read a specific chapter.
To add a public note (3:30)
Click the title which opens up the detailed record. Scroll down. To the right of the public note field click add note. Type in the note, for example: 'please read chapter 9 before your tutorial' and click save. Close the detailed record by clicking the ‘X’ at the top left. The public note has appeared under the item on the list.
