Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Turn your iPad into a hands on hands on underwater museum, with this solid collection of seven simulations. While this isn't our favorite Tinybop Explorer App (Human Body and Mammals offer more content) this app succeeds in bringing the Indo-Pacific coral reef to your fingertips, mixing scientifically accurate information with hands on activities.

There are seven options from the first menu: Cleaner Fish (help small fish clean larger animals); Seagrass (plant seeds and see how other plants and animals show up); Parrotfish (see how coral is cleaned, and how sand is made); Blacktip Reef Shark (play with the conditions a shark needs to live); Box Jellyfish (see how jellyfish contribute to the ecosystem); Peacock Mantis Shrip (put a tiny crab in front of this amazing creature and see what happens); and Linckia Sea Star (help dead things decompose). As with other Tinybop apps, there's a well designed PDF teacher's guide, and you can toggle on labels to learn more about items shown on the screen. This is the tenth in the Explorer series of Tinybop apps, and it's well worth the download. This app was illustrated by Wenjia Tang, who also illustrated Mammals.

Exploring this app has been a very popular activity in our library. Kids LOVE the Linckia Sea Star option! because of the content, app design and illustration, grown-ups are motivated to play and learn alongside their children with this app, and we love to promote joint media engagement in the library!
