Reading history and saved lists in your library account

Reading history

Concordia students, faculty and staff may retain a list of items borrowed from the Library by activating an optional My Reading History feature in CLUES.

Enabling this feature is voluntary, and the system does not track reading history unless you specifically Opt-In. Please read the Privacy Disclaimer in CLUES before you opt-in. You may opt-out of reading history at any time.

When you first Opt-In:

  • items previously or currently out on loan to you will not appear in reading history
  • only items borrowed after you have opted-in will be tracked in My Reading History

After you enable this feature and borrow items, click on the "My Reading History" icon in CLUES to see your reading history.

In My Reading History you may:

  • sort the list by author or title by clicking on column headers
  • export your entire history
  • delete some or all items in your reading history

Please note that only the original checked-out date is displayed in Reading History. Renewal dates are not tracked.

Only you have access to your reading history, and you are responsible for maintaining it. The Library does not have access to your reading history.

This handout illustrates the activation steps inside CLUES.

My Lists

Concordia students, faculty and staff may create and manage lists of titles in CLUES using the My Lists feature.

To add items to a list:

  • mark titles while browsing using checkboxes on the left, then click on "Add Marked to My Lists"
  • alternatively, from the full record display, save by using the "Add to My Lists" button along the top.
Create a list by giving it a name and description, and Submit to save. If you are not already logged into CLUES, the system will prompt you to do so. Use the dropdown menu to see/select lists that you have previously created. After you save, the system will display a confirmation message.

When you are in MyCLUES, click on the "My Lists" icon to see your lists.

Lists may be:
  • sorted by author or title by clicking on column headers
  • exported
  • renamed
  • moved to a different list
  • deleted
  • when a Request button appears in the last column, use it to have the library set the item aside for you.

Only you have access to any lists that you create, and you are responsible for maintaining them. The Library does not have access to your lists.
