Annotating PQ Ebooks

It is best to annotate in the online reader and then export the annotations as they will go away once the loan period expires. 

To annotate:

  1. Open the book by clicking the “Read Online” button.  
  2. The annotation tools will be visible any time the book is open (see green box in image below)
    • Highlight: Use cursor to select text for highlighting and then choose color: yellow, blue, or magenta. 
    • Note: Use cursor to select text for notation, click the note icon, and click Save when finished with note. 
      • Clicking on the Note tool without selecting text beforehand will generate a note for the overall page. 
    • Bookmark: Click the Bookmark icon to mark any pages that you want to . 
  3. All annotations will appear listed by page and type in the Annotation Panel (see red box in image below), which can be opened by clicking the star icon in the left sidebar.
