Knovel resources, searching and personalization

What is My Knovel

My Knovel allows you to have quick access to recent searches and viewed content, save and organize content, share content with colleagues and view content on your mobile device. Dock the floating panel where it is most convenient for you.

This is a great way for you to create a central location that can be easily accessed, to gather together all your most frequently used resources (e.g. databases, standards, online searches, e-books).

Setting up My Knovel

Sign up for “My Knovel” by creating a profile. First click on the My Knovel tab and then click Sign Up. Once you have completed the personal information form, click Sign up. You should then be taken to your My Knovel page.

If you experience any issues with registering please contact South Metropolitan TAFE Library Services

Accessing My Knovel

The options available with My Knovel are:

My Saved Searches

This allows you to save search queries, so that they can be re-executed at a later time.

My Bookshelf

This allows you to save titles within Knovel that you view frequently and organize them into folders.

My Saved Content

This allows you to save and organize content. For example material you are using for a particular project.

These can be accessed via the Knovel homepage, which displays a quick view of My Saved Searches, My Bookshelf and My Saved Content. By clicking on the items you can re-execute a search or view the titles or chapters displayed. You can also access these options by clicking on the My Knovel tab, which will take you to your My Knovel page,

This is an excellent place to save a reading list.  Because of Knovel's deep linking you can create these lists at the chapter level. All items in a folder can be exported as a reading list and embedded into Blackboard. You can also share and embed single links.

The My Knovel video tutorial explains how you can save and organize your content.
