    Saving Files on server via the GUI search, for loading into Course Reserves

    As the Course Reserves processing is in the GUI in v19, staff have asked how they can "collect' bib records via the GUI search, and then save them on the server to be loaded into a Reserve Course.
    The My e-shelf basket works as the 'collecting pot' in the web, but the "My Records" feature in the GUI does not provide the equivalent functionality - to save the records to the server. It only lets you print, send via email or save to one's PC.

    You can save displayed records as a set from the Browse list or via the upper panel under Show, but titles on a reading list from a prof cannot be searched and displayed together to be 'collected' in this way. i.e. you cannot search for and then add disparate records to an existing set.

    Though you can do “Save on server” for a particular Result Set on the bottom right in the Find, this is terribly inconvenient for many results. We need to have it in the “My Records”.

    This Enhancement Request is being evaluated.
