After you’ve created a prescribed list, set up user groups, and assigned titles to users, the next step is to share your prescribed list by publishing it. 

Publishing your prescribed list makes it available to the relevant users (e.g. students or staff), so that they can start reviewing their orders and buying the books that have been allocated to them. If your educational institution is purchasing the titles on the prescribed list, you will also need to publish the list before you will be able to finalise your order.

Only the owner of the prescribed list can publish it. Review your list carefully before publishing, to double-check that the titles and user groups are correct.

To publish your prescribed list:

  1. Once logged in to Engage, navigate to the prescribed list by clicking ‘Textbooks’ then ‘Prescribed Lists’.
  2. All the new prescribed lists are displayed. Click your prescribed list’s title to open it.
  3. Review the information to check that everything is correct, then click the ‘Publish’ button at the top of the page.
  4. Next, click ‘Yes’ in the pop-up to confirm that you want to publish the prescribed list.

If you need to edit your prescribed list, you’ll first need to unpublish it.
