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.

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.


Extensive student guidance provided:

          List categories / Free text notes / Filter tags

Link directly to:

          Real-time holdings availability and location information. Place reservations.

 Tablet and Smartphone Friendly

Reading lists are available to your users on the move. The web based interface is compatible with all major web browsers, and a separate mobile application makes it simple to find items on the shelf or connect to electronic resources. Library staff can scan items on the shelf to see which reading lists an item is part of, and links to other information to reduce the amount of time it takes to manage physical short loan or reading list collections.

The mobile service is compatible with a range of products including iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, Android phones, and Blackberry
