Top tips for using ORLO
Add to My Lists
Use the ‘+MyLists’ button to save a list to your profile. Saved lists will always be available to you under the My Lists tab, even after it has been archived at the end of the academic year.
Assign reading intentions
Add your reading intentions to plan what you will read and mark your progress. Click on the circle to the far right of an item and choose from five intentions.
Select ‘View & Export’ button at the top of the list, for different export options. Choose RIS for import to reference managers or PDF-List to save a copy of the list.
Use the drop-down filter options at the top of the reading list to only display items that are essential or recommended, physical or online or to filter by your reading intentions.
Report broken links
Staff work hard to ensure that the ‘View Online’ button links are kept up to date. However, these can sometimes require an extra login or may not load correctly. If you encounter this issue, please make sure you are still logged into ORLO with your SSO. You can also try clearing the cache and cookies in your browser. Visit this guide for further details on how to do this.
If the ‘View Online’ button is still not working, click the three dots on the far right of the reading list item and select ‘Report broken link’. Please provide your University email address so that staff can notify you as soon as the link has been fixed.
View other formats/editions
Click on the title of a book to look at its details, including print availability. Look up alternative editions in SOLO by clicking ‘View other formats/editions’ under availability.
