To get started using Reading Lists Online you first need to register with the system and then install the Bookmarklet tool on your web browser. See below for instructions.

How to install the Bookmarklet tool

Before you start to create any reading lists you need to install the Bookmarklet tool onto your web brower (we suggest you use Firefox). The Bookmarklet tool allows you to build your resources on the Reading Lists Online quickly and easily.

How to set up the Bookmarklet on your iPad

It is not possible to install the Bookmarklet button in the browser on your iPad, but you can set up a similar shortcut in the list of bookmarks on your device:

 

  • Bookmark this page - tap on the 'share' icon in Safari, which is represented by a square with an up arrow inside it, then select 'Add Bookmark' and 'Save'

 

  • Copy the code in the box below - tap within the box then tap and hold for a few seconds. When you release your finger a menu will appear. Tap 'Select All' then 'Copy'

 

 

  • Edit the bookmark you just created - tap on the 'Bookmarks' icon, which is represented by an open book, then navigate to where you saved the bookmark and select 'Edit' from the bottom of the screen. The display will change so that a red circle appears next to each bookmark. Tap on the bookmark to go into the edit screen, then change the title to 'Add to my RLO bookmarks'. Next, remove the URL by tapping on the small grey cross then tap and hold your finger for a couple of seconds in the address box.  When you release your finger the 'Paste' button will appear. Tap on this, then select 'Done'

 

  • You're all set! - next time you find an item that you want to add to your RLO bookmarks, simply tap on the 'Bookmarks' icon, go into your 'Favourites', then select 'Add to my RLO bookmarks'
