e-Shelf & Email Features in Clark College Libraries Catalog

When you sign into your library catalog account (formerly know as Discover Library Account), you will be able to keep track of your chosen research sources online with e-Shelf. Together with your library catalog account, you can access your e-Shelf from any computer or mobile device with internet access.


With your library account, you can: 

  • add resources to your e-Shelf while looking at search results
  • (re)view resources on your e-Shelf added in the past
  • organize resources into specific folders
  • delete resources no longer needed           
  • email or print list of resources from your e-Shelf 
  • record brief notes about resources in the e-Shelf…
  • get citations for your bibliography (via Action menu on the View It, Get It or Details tab)

Add Resources to Your Library Catalog e-Shelf

Add Item to e-Shelf

1. Add relevant resources to your e-Shelf by clicking on the white star next to the title of the resource. Once the star turns yellow, the information about this book (e-book or article or video...) is saved to your e-Shelf. Another way to add a resource to your e-Shelf is by selecting this option from the Actions menu in the Get It or View It or Details tabs.

3. Click on the browser back button or on the green Search button to leave e-Shelf and to return to the search results.

Remove Item from e-Shelf

There are two different options to remove an item from your e-Shelf:

1. Click on the yellow star and once it turns white, the item is no longer on your e-Shelf.

2. In your e-Shelf, select the check-off box next to the item you wish to delete and then click on the "delete selected items" icon (looks like an "x")
