How to Take Notes and Highlight Wolters-Kluwer Ebook Study Aids

You might know that you have 24/7 unlimited access to Emanuel’s outlines, Examples and Explanations and other great study aids via the Wolters Kluwer Study Aid Library.  But did you know you can take notes, highlight and add bookmarks too?  You can do so by creating a subaccount, and your notes, highlights and bookmarks will be there the next time you log in.  There is a Student User Manual with instructions, but briefly:

  1. Log into Wolters Kluwer Study Aid Library using your library card number, which is your UANet ID.
  2. Once you are logged in click Sign Up in the User Login box on the lefthand side.

You will still be able to read the ebooks on the site even if you don’t create a sub-login; however, you won’t be able to take notes, highlights or add bookmarks.

Please contact the library  with any questions you have about this great resource.
