How can I create an e-book bookshelf using QCat?

Some of our e-book platforms offer sophisticated bookshelf functions. These allow you to add books and even highlight or annotate them. Unfortunately the bookshelf function doesn't allow you to mix books from different e-book platforms on the same shelf. You can however create a basic bookshelf using the My List function within QCat which can include all our e-books.
To do this add the e-book you want to the basket (you can add multiple titles if you want):
Go to My Cart (at the top of the QCat screen):
Select the Save to list option
You will now be prompted to login to your QCat account (this uses the same credentials as for your email etc.) and then asked to create a list (if you don't have one already):
The e-book is now saved to your personal list - if you need to access it simply go to your QCat account:
Select the list from My Lists:
And link through to the e-book:
From Queen's Online (QOL) you can simply click on My Account on the Library panel:
And link through to your lists:
