Introduction to Booklists & Bookshelves

Booklists and Bookshelves are the core of ChiliPAC.

What is the difference between Booklist and a Bookshelf?

There are only 3 pre-set kinds of Bookshelves:

  • Completed - for items that you have completed reading
  • In progress - for items that you are reading currently
  • For later - for your wishlist items that you are planning to read

and you can add only items from your library's catalog. By default bookshelves are private, but you can choose to share your boookshelves with others and get a permanent URL for that, e.g.,

On the other hand Booklists:

  • you can create as many booklists as you wish - one for different purpose, or one for different user to advise
  • you can add also other online items to your booklists - such as articles, websites, and other e-resources
  • you can add description of the booklist and annotations of items on your booklists

Booklists also can be private or public, you can read more about them here.
