How do I add a journal article to an Aspire reading list using the bookmarklet tool?

On the page which contains bibliographic detail about the article including the DOI or other permanent link (not the table of contents for the issue)

  • Click Add to my bookmarks (or whatever you have called Aspire bookmarklet) on your browser's bookmarks bar

A new Aspire record opens with Resource Type: Article and two tabs, one for the Article and one for the Journal.

If the article has Resource Type: Webpage or Document instead, cancel it and try adding the article manually ( How do I do that? )

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

Important: if the full text of the article is not available you will need to request a digitisation (How do I do that?) A link to the digitised chapter will be added by library staff to the Aspire bookmark.


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