myList and Book Bundles

All myON users can use the myList feature to create their own lists of books. You can organize the books in myList into bundles. If you are a Teacher or Building Administrator, you can then add those books to a project or share them with students.

To learn more, read the instructions below and watch the video at the end of this topic.

Adding Books to myList

Wherever students, Teachers, or Building or District Administrators view books, whether you are viewing recommended books, browsing, or searching for books, you will see an Add/Add to myList button, both on the book cover and in the book information window. Click this button to add the book to myList.

     

You can also add a book to myList as you read. Look for the myList button to the right of the zoom and full window buttons. After you select the myList button, you'll see hearts move upward; then, the button will show a check mark instead of +.

Viewing the Books in myList

To see the books you've added to myList, select Library, then myList.

As you view myList, you can do the following:

  • Search for books with specific words in the title:
  • Use the options at the top of the page to choose whether to see just book covers and titles or a list with more information.
  • Choose how you want to sort the books.

Organizing myList Books Into Bundles

Once you've added books to myList, you can organize the books into bundles. Bundles are groups of books that you want to use for the same purpose, such as books you want to read, books for a project, or books that you want to share with students.

The bundles that you have created are on the left side of the page; select a bundle to see the books that are in it. When you select "All myList Books," all books that you've added to myList are shown, including the books in all of your bundles and books that are not in a bundle.

If you want to add a new bundle, select on the left. Then, in the window that opens, enter the name of the new bundle and select Save.

To move books into a bundle, select "All myList Books" or a different bundle that the books are already in; then, drag the books to the desired bundle on the left side of the page. Books can only be in one bundle at a time; if you view a bundle and drag one of its books to a different bundle, the book will be moved to the new bundle, not copied.

Copying Books from a Bundle to a Project

Whether you view All myList Books or a specific bundle, Teachers, Building Administrators, or District Administrators can copy the books that are shown to a project. Make your selection on the left; then click the gear icon in the top right corner of the page and select Copy to Project as shown below.

If you want to add the books to a project you've already created, select the Add to Project drop-down list and choose the project that you want to add the books to; then, select Save.

If you want to add books to a new project, select the second option; then, enter the name for the project. Select Save.

Whether you add books to an existing project or to a new one, you can change your selections later by editing the project.

Sharing a Bundle with Students

Teachers and Building Administrators can share a bundle that they have created with their students. When a Building Administrator shares a bundle, all students in the school will see it. When a Teacher shares a bundle, the students assigned to that Teacher's roster will see the bundle.

To share a bundle, view the books in the bundle. Then, select the gear icon in the top right corner of the page and select Share with Students. (Note: This is not available when you have "All myList Books" selected, but it is available when you select one of the bundles that you have created.)

Then, choose the Share until option and enter a date (or select a date from the calendar that opens). The date that you enter or select must be within the school year and can't be more than 90 days in the future. Select Save.

Shared bundles have a "thumbs up" icon in the list of bundles.

Once you have shared a bundle, when your students select Library, then Recommended, one of the categories of recommended books will be the bundle that you created. Your students will see the bundle until the date that you selected.

Renaming or Deleting Bundles

You can also rename or delete the bundles that you have created in myList.

To rename a bundle, first select the bundle on the left. Select the gear icon, then Rename. Then, enter a new name in the window and select Save.

To delete a bundle, first select the bundle. Select the gear icon, then Delete. In the message that opens, select Delete again to confirm that you want to delete the bundle.
