My Bookbags is a feature that allows you to create lists of library materials. These lists create links to records in the catalog, but are otherwise completely private and only accessible by you when logged in to your Account.

You have the option to share specific lists with people whom you choose (send them the direct URL), or more generally via RSS feed. Shared bookbags do NOT create a link to your personal library account information or private bookbags. You can share or unshare bookbags at any time.

You can create as many bookbags as you want. Your bookbags will stay in your account until you delete them.

Items remain in bookbags until you remove them. Even if the item record is removed from the catalog, the bookbag entry will remain (but there will be no link to the catalog.)
