Safari cookies prevent display of reading list


The staff view of the reading list does not display. Instead you get a message om the eReserve page saying you have to change your cookie settings.


Mac users using Safari (note that this may differ slightly depending on the version of your browser or operating system):

  1. Go to the Safari menu;
  2. select Preferences from the drop-down menu;
  3. in the box that opens, select the Privacy tab; and
  4. deselect the check box next to Prevent cross-site tracking.

PC users using Safari: same as above but you’ll find the Preferences under the Edit menu.
