The My Lists feature replaces the bookbag feature that was available in versions prior to 2.2. The My Lists feature is a part of the Template Toolkit OPAC that is available in version 2.2. This feature enables you to create temporary and permanent lists; create and edit notes for items in lists; place holds on items in lists; and share lists via RSS feeds and CSV files.

There is now a direct link to My Lists from the My Account area in the top right part of the screen. This gives users the ability to quickly access their lists while logged into the catalog.

As of version 3.2, Batch Actions from Search Results has replaced the old Temporary Lists feature, as well as enabled multiple selections from a search results list.
