I find lists helpful – they keep me on track and tell me what to do. The library catalog can also help me to remember what to read, reread, or recommend to friends, family, or colleagues.
I’ve been exploring the “My Lists” feature in “My Account.” You will find it as the last link when you open up “My Account” – click the link and you can access any of your lists. I find this feature very useful when I’m searching the library catalog. I can electronically mark the items I want to remember and then click on “Add Marked to My Lists.”
Since the “My Lists” feature works with the library catalog, you can also use it to request or hold books you’re ready to read. (By the way, this feature only works with items listed in the Alameda County Library catalog.)
So, try this feature. You could make several lists and then edit or delete them whenever you wish. It’s your account.
And if you’re looking for titles to add to “My Lists,” do explore the “Reader’s Corner,” “a place to explore and expand your reading pleasure.” The guide contains reviews, awards, suggestions, and much, much more.
