For those who manage online reading lists, you will be familiar with the ‘Bookmark button’. It sits in your web browser to click on whenever you see an article, programme or other resource to save into an online reading list – or for later reading.
The increase in websites moving from http to https has caused some problems for bookmarking in certain browsers, or particular versions of browsers. Whilst http websites still bookmark as usual, those beginning https don’t work as well; the current work-around to resolve this involves removing security certificates, which rather impedes the ease of working with reading lists!
Therefore, in the week beginning 19th January the bookmarking button software will be updated. After the upgrade, the next time you use the button, you will be prompted to update it. This step will be easy to complete, but if you run into any difficulties just get in touch with the TLSS and we will help out, or do it for you.
And for those yet to set themselves up with an online reading list… request a reading list to be set up for your course and you could be adding readings for your students by the end of the day!
