The Basket function enables records to be gathered from a number of separate searches into one place so that they can be reviewed, exported to print, file or email, or requested from the Library.

Note that records only stay in the basket for the duration of the logged in session - to keep track of records for longer, the Collections (old) function can be used.

The word "Basket" and all its associated messages can be changed in System Management (Resource String Translations).


The Basket is automatically available to library staff - for OPAC users, whether it is available or not is determined in Access Permissions.
