Like the older version of Books24x7, the new Skillsoft Books interface has personalized features that allow you to save resources within personal folders, add bookmarks to specific locations in books, and add personal notes to books. The following pages show you how to migrate those personalized elements to the new version.
The new Skillsoft Books interface allows users to create and manage a Personal Learning Plan and use a My Tasks feature to stay on top of learning goals. This quick start guide will not address those features. Those features, along with the finer points of searching, browser and utilizing resources will be addressed in subsequent guides.
Please visit our Research Guides section in the future to see all our guides.
There is no way to automatically migrate your folders, books, bookmarks and notes to the new interface! Furthermore, the old interface will not longer be accessible after October 1, 2017. If you want to re-create these elements, we recommend you use cut/paste into a Microsoft Word document, save the document, and use those notes to search for items in the new platform so that you can re-build your personal collections.
