Skillsoft Books: Quick Start Guide: Bookmarks

The purpose of this guide is to help VDOT employees find and use Skillsoft Books (formerly called Books24x7), a subscription database providing access to tens of thousands of E-books and videos.

The previous interface utilized "Bookmarks" to help you mark a precise location in books. The new interface has the same feature, with the same name and it works the same way. However, a bookmark looks different in the new interface, as shown below. To re-create bookmarks, we recommend you either make hand notes of the locations of bookmarks you want to preserve, or use the Windows Snipping Tool to capture an image showing the location of the bookmark.

Bookmarks: Comparison

In the previous version of Books24x7 bookmarks looked like this:
