Managing notifications

After you have Sent your list to the Library, it is important that you check your notifications for any updates. Notifications are located at the top right-hand corner of your Reading List beside your initials as a bell icon with a number.

You will receive notifications for different types of activity on your Reading List from collaborators, your students, and librarians.

For example, ‚Äčnotifications are generated when a student comments or recommends resources to you, from the Library when a digitisation request is complete or advice is needed from you, or when a collaborator adds or deletes a citation.

By default, you will receive a daily email of the previous day's activity. You can opt-out of email notifications in your profile settings by following the instructions below:

1. Go to your profile and select User settings.
2. Under Notifications, de-select Receive notifications by email and SAVE
