Cite It! Video

This video was created for course convenors and shows you how to add the Cite It! bookmarklet to your browser bar. You won't be able to add resources to a reading list, only to your personal collection. From your collection, you can suggest a resource to a particular reading list, however, it will need to be approved by the convenor before it is officially added to the list.
