The e-shelf is a personalised area of the Library Search interface, where you are able to store a list of books and articles and search strategies.  You will need to login to Library Search to enable all features.  Once you have items on your e-shelf the contents can be sorted into individual folders.  You can also add personal notes to the item records, to help you keep track of quotations you’ve used or chapters you need to study, etc.  The lists can easily be export into reference management tools such as Refworks, Mendelay and Zotero. (NB: Your personal notes would not be exported).

To add items to your e-shelf from your search, click on the little star that appears before the title of your selected item and the star will turn gold.
