How do I add a book to an Aspire reading list from a bookseller or publisher website?

If the book you want to add is not on Primo then you can add it from an online retailer like Amazon or Blackwell's

  • Visit Amazon and find the book that you want to add

  • Select the paperback format even if you would prefer an ebook (the Library cannot by a Kindle but will check for institutional ebooks)

    Screenshot from Amazon

  • Click on the Aspire bookmarklet button or the Talis extension icon. 

  • You may need to edit the content of the bookmark, for example, the Author in the screenshot below. Also remove the Web Address field or it will appear on your reading lists as a link to the Amazon page.

Bookmarking from Amazon

  • Click Create & Add to List to immediately add your bookmark to an existing list (How do I do that)


  • Click Create if you want to add a bookmark for later addition to a list (How do I do this?)
