    How to add the correct resource type in a Reading List citation?

    • Product: Alma

    Question

    How to add the correct resource type in a Reading List? Currently only type book is displayed.

    Answer

    The information displayed at the beginning of the 2nd. line of a citation in the Reading List is not the resource type but the citation material type. Therefore you might see different values here than in a repository search result list. The citation matierial type can be changed manually.

    Please find an example with screenshots here Reading list.docx

    The resource types from a BIB record in resource management and the material types for citations in a reading list are unfortunately not related. The material type has to be assigned manually and if this is not done the default value "Book" is taken. Please see also the documentation https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Documentation/Alma_Online_Help_(English)/Fulfillment/060Courses_and_Reading_Lists/040Managing_Citations#reading_list_citation.edit
