You may edit your List and the Items within your Lists. 

Creating List Sections

Click on a reading list in My Lists to open it and click New Section.

Give your section a title and an optional description.

You can also enter start and end dates for each section. If you only want students to see a section during these dates then you can tick the box for Section visible only during these dates.

Click Create to finish adding the section. You can continue to add more sections as needed.

Moving items

Items can simply be dragged and dropped into a list, or between sections of a list.

You can also select one or more sections or citations, and then click to insert the selected items below any other section or citation. The selected items are placed into a temporary clipboard, called My Bag. You can:

  • Bag It - to select the item, aka place it in My Bag 
  • Unbag It - to unselect the item and remove it from My Bag
  • Move all items from my Bag from their existing locations to the new selected location.
    My Bag is emptied after the items are moved.
