Import a Resource List

    • A Resource List cannot be imported into a new or existing collection if it has more than 100 items.
    • You can only import Resource Lists that you own. To import a public Resource List that you do not own, you must copy it before you can import it.
    • If you have permission to create Resource Lists in Destiny and do not see the Import Resource List drop-down, it is due to an invalid SSL Certificate. In the browser address bar, check your connection. If it is not secure, contact Follett Technical Support.
