Recommendations, reviews and star ratings

Reviews and ratings provide a useful way for you to add your thoughts and opinions about any item in the library catalogue. For example, if you have read a good book, share your views about with other Arena users.

Read a review

  1. Find the item you want to review. To learn more see Search.
  2. Click the item title to view details about it.
  3. Locate the Reviews section.
  4. If any views are present, the most recent of them will appear here.
  5. Click Show all to view other reviews for this item.
  6. If you have clicked Show all to view other reviews for this item, you may click Show first to view the first of the reviews.

If you find a review that you feel is offensive or illegal, inform a member of library staff.

Add a review

When adding a review, remember that it may be read by many people. Think about what readers may want to know about the item you are reviewing. A statement such as "I hated it" may be true, but it does not enlighten the reader about the item. Instead, consider the good and bad points about the item, or how this edition of the item differs from others. People act on reviews, so your review should reflect the item in a balanced and interesting way.

Try to write your review in a balanced and interesting way. For tips and advice about contributions to Arena see Community Guidelines.

You may give an item a star rating, instead of, or as well as, a review. The rating system uses ten stars, which indicate how much you like the item.

Star rating 1.png 1 star means you dislike the item very much.

Star rating 5.png 5 stars mean you quite like them, but have some reservations about it.

Star rating 10.png 10 stars mean you like the item very much, and have no reservations about it.
