Reading Lists for all

rebus:list is designed to manage all kinds of reading lists, ranging from university course reading for academic libraries, through to best seller lists for public libraries, and current awareness lists for specialist libraries. Fundamental to the design is the concept of complete reading list management aimed at supporting the entire workflow of generating, maintaining, and managing reading lists.

Simplicity for users

We’ve worked very hard to make it easy for you to control your reading lists. The entire system is managed though a simple and intuitive interface where libraries are in complete control of the structure and hierarchy of lists, the users who contribute toward the creation and management of lists, and the material contained within. Material and lists can be searched, browsed, sorted, and filtered in a variety of ways, making it straightforward not only to find the information you and your users need, but to work with it efficiently once located.

  • Keyword search the local catalogue and add material with a click

  • If the item is not in the local catalogue, search other external sources to add material
