This article is for LIBRARIANS. ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ“—๐Ÿ˜


Since Snapplifyโ€™s catalogue comprises hundred of thousands of books and serves multiple levels of educational institutions, you may come across books that you donโ€™t want your students to see or read.

Snapplify has already blocked certain inappropriate content for younger readers, but you may wish to block other books too.

๐Ÿ“šโ›” Books that have been blocked from your institution's digital library will also be blocked in the store.

To block particular titles from Engage, as a librarian:

  1. Log in to Engage and navigate to your digital library.
  2. Once you've found the book you wish to block, navigate to the particular book's book page by clicking on the jacket image.
  3. On the right-hand side of the screen, click the red 'Block' button.
  4. In the pop-up window, include the reason you need to block the book, then click 'Yes' when asked if this content is inappropriate for your audience.
